Island Master That was like watching paint dry! He was running well enough and he deserved to get one but the trouble was to place him, and I actually thought it was too soft for him today. In fairness to the young lad (Darragh O'Keeffe) he got stuck into him and was good. He picked up for him and he kept driving; he's not an easy ride, he's a young man's ride. He took a bit of driving and Darragh is a fit young fella. He has a great owner Tom Murphy, who works in the golf course in Midleton, and he is on every month before he gets the bill looking to pay you; he is a really genuine owner and I'm delighted for him to have a bit of luck. Tom has had great fun with him but he has thrown away a few races in the past when idling in front.

October Revolution He was half off the bridle for the first round but stays away at it well and is tough out. He surprised me a little bit as he out of it a bit with the ratings with the other horses but he enjoys the summer ground and comes into himself once a year and wings his fences. I'm 28, have had six point-to-point winners and that's good to get that first racecourse winner out of the way.
