Power Drive he was standing a little bit funny in the gates and I was afraid he might miss the break because I wanted to let him bowl and use his stride. He's a lovely big galloping horse who handles fast ground well and he'll make a lovely summer jumper. He has loads of scope and size. He was spot on today, Charles had him good, because when I gave him a squeeze off the turn he quickened a little bit. That's the key to him, fast ground and a good gallop. He loved that out in front bowling along. He could do now more than win there anyway.

Black Label He had two runs runs for me. I claimed him off a good friend of mine Ado (McGuinness). I asked him and he didn't mind. He knows him inside out and maybe just the change of yard and being freshened up helped. When we got him he looked a million dollars for a horse that's had a lot of runs, and he's a credit to him really. He had a good run in Perth and a good run in Ayr, where they went no gallop. He's a grand versatile horse and he'll head back to England now I'd say. There might be another day in him on the Flat or something. I claimed him for an owner of mine but made the mistake of not putting his name on him so I ended up with him myself which is grand. He's a grand fun horse.
