Run For Mary I'm delighted for the owners, the Solwhit connections. It's great to get back again with them. She's improving away, she learned a lot from Limerick. She travelled much better today, she knew what racing was about today. She quickened well and I thought it was a good performance. They went a good, honest gallop and I thought she won it well. She had to come around them as well. She had a nice bit to do four furlongs out. She'll probably jump a hurdle I'd say. She obviously wants good ground so if the ground stays good she'll run away. She could get black type at some stage.

Bobsfirth I bought him to sell him initially and we really liked him but he disappointed as a four and five-year-old as he was weak. I thought today's race would cut up to only a few winners but we couldn't see Willie Mullins' (Yukon Lil) being beaten really but said we'd give it a shot. I'm delighted and we can still go for a winners of one and might do that or sell him. We have options now whereas last year I was pulling my hair out with him!

Run For Mary It was a good performance and I had her mother too. She is a nice mare and had been working nicely and we'll go for a winners' bumper next. She runs in the famous Solwhit colours and we bought Run For Mary's dam and Solwhit out of the same stable in Belgium and both were by Solon (stallion).

Under Surveillance I've always thought a lot of this one but she ran twice on heavy ground and didn’t like it. Her mother didn’t like it either and we said that we’d give her a break. She works great, and she opened up fairly quick turning into the straight. She is a great jumper, and we might go to Galway now for a maiden hurdle. Hopefully she'll get that ground. Conor (22) is an older brother of Oisin and he rides out for us in the yard. That's his third winner in the space of a month (since returning from the UK).

Sally Park we gave him a break because we felt that he didn't cope with the heavy ground. He didn't jumped great today and he suffered a bit with his palate. He's probably going to have that done and then come back for something. He has a few issues. He won't stay hurdling for long as he'll go chasing. You wouldn't go chasing on the back of some of those jumps but he does jump fences well and maybe it was the track because he does jump well and he actually jumped well when he asked him.
