Wearapinkribbon Stepping up in trip and jumping helped him today. I know he made a mistake at the last but at home he has been jumping very well. He is a nice jumper and a nice horse that will go up in trip again I think. It has taken him a while to learn how to race. In his bumpers he was very green. Hopefully he might improve again to win a novice hurdle or two. He is owned by Neville Eager and a few pals of his. He is named in honour of their good friend Breda Miley who had cancer but is well at the moment.

Wadiyatink Now I ride out in Gavin's every now and then and obviously Johnny (Moore, injured stable jockey) is out; it comes in swings and roundabouts I suppose, as Johnny won the Kerry National on Snow Falcon for Noel Meade two years ago when I was out. I had never sat on her (Wadiyatink Now) but had spoken to Gavin (Cromwell) before racing and he said to drop in. He was trying to get a handle on her today more than anything else as her runs had been a little bit disappointing. She was fresh and well and she came home really well. To be fair I had a dream run all the way down the inner and I probably saved eight or ten lengths and it was a big help.

Drop The Anchor That was a great pot to win and he won his bumper here on similar ground (in 2018). I had a few horses beaten recently that ran well but thought I'm never going to get a bit of luck!. The non-runners were a big help, and it was his first run back, but funny enough he can run well first-time. The jockey was claiming 5lbs from a low weight and, to ride a winner in the race before it, he is on fire so it is unbelievable. That was his first ride for me and I'm delighted with him, the horse, the owner and Aoibhinn (Walsh) for bringing him down. I'm delighted racing is still on and giving people a chance to make a living. I'll look for something similar with the horse and, depending on what the owners say, he might go up in trip if the ground isn't as soft next time.

Eilise's A Lady She is a fair mare, she isn't big but is all heart and she is very well bred. It is not surprising she could be a good mare because of the pedigree she has. I think we might put her by and go for the Listed bumper at Gowran in October. She is brilliant over hurdles and none of the family were any good until they went jumping. She'll be limited to hurdles but we'll settle for that!. Aaron is 20 and has only ridden for me, but rides out for Jessica Harrington and if he could get outside rides he'd be delighted.

Eilise's A Lady She has a savage pedigree as she's out of a full-sister to Our Vic. The owners (Martins To Booleigh Syndicate) would have loved to been here today but that's the way it is and it's great to have a winner. We're back racing, that's the main thing, and please God the virus stays away and we get better and stronger. Mary Lett, who had He'llberembered with me, has a share in him along with a Dublin lad and a few locals. Kilbeggan is a great track, it's fairly local to us and we've had a lot of luck here. Aaron had his first few rides here so got to know the track and likes it. It's a very proud moment when you get your son to ride a winner. He's up there grafting in the morning before he goes to Jessie (Harrington's). He hasn't been getting any outside rides. He hasn't given horses bad rides, it's just the fact that we haven't had the quality of horses in the last few years. The last winner I had was the festival in Galway (Oakly, in 2017). I had to go on Google maps to find the number one spot!
