Some Man If it had been on normal ground, I thought he'd have done that, but seeing good horses strung out today, I was very worried about it. He was very very keen when we got him and I knew if he didn't relax on that ground today, he was going to be gone in a couple of hundred yards when you'd ask for him. Rob said he relaxed and got into a lovely rhythm and for me personally, he is as good as I've had and is a proper horse. He had lots of problems when I bought him at a dispersal sale for GBP5,500 last May. He is not a slow horse either and I'll qualify him for Cheltenham. He has to be placed in another hunter chase or win an Open Point to Point so I'll go the easiest possible route I can take.

Arthur's Quay He is a lovely horse and the step up to 2m4f did the job,. His brother (The Big Apple) wasn't a bad horse, I won a bumper on him so he must have been all right and it is a lovely family. We always liked him from day one and it is great he has gone and done it. It's grand to get today over with and Frank (Berry) and J.P. (McManus, owner) will come up with a plan.
