Formal Order I missed what happened at the last and Sean (Flanagan) said Bryan Cooper (on runner-up Fairyhill Run) thought he had Rachael (Blackmore, on leader Commandingpresence) beaten. He (Formal Order) rallied well, stayed well and picked up well. I told Sean going out not to worry about his price as I thought he beat two good horses the last day. He has had two hurdle runs and two wins so he stepped up today and it is great. I'll take it one race at a time and I've no plan yet. I was talking to Keith (Donoghue, intended rider) and he is just sore from a fall yesterday.

British Art He's back to form - we had a season there of him out of form. We thought he was working well at home but he has done that before!. Barry gave him a great ride, it was left up to himself how to handle him. He won on him before.

Ebony Maw . We were knocking on the door, finishing second, in the last couple of weeks so it's grand to get one before the weekend. He did that lovely and is a typical Iffraaj. He loved taking a lead and got to the front as late as he wanted to get there. He's still green as he hasn't got a lot of miles on the clock. That yielding ground is what he wants, he wouldn't want on the quick side of good, and his minimum trip is a mile-and-two. It's ten days since he ran after a break and he took a couple of blows so should improve for that. We've got his maiden out of the way and hopefully off his mark there is a nice handicap in him.
