Young Dev He was a course and distance winner and had been working nicely lately. It wasn't the strongest race and I told Liam (Mulryan) he'd go close, so I hope he had a few quid on. He'll come back here for a handicap chase at Christmas even though he isn't as good over a fence. Damien (Skehan) is assistant trainer to me now; he actually came to me in July and the first week he broke his foot so he missed most of the autumn. He is a massive addition and is a very good judge and he along with Jack (Hogan) will ride in the amateur races for me.

Miss Mcilroy She is a funny old mare and she has her days. When she is in-season she doesn't perform but we had her checked this morning and she was fine,. Kevin gets on brilliant with her and keeps her out of trouble. I didn't even give him instructions and said 'you know her'. I had to fight to get him to ride her as he was on another horse in the race; he was away on holidays and I told him if he doesn't ride her, he wouldn't ride for me on Tuesday!. She is here over 2m4f on Saturday and is she pulls out fresh and well, she'll run again.

Sweettowatch We have her entered in the sales and she has a good pedigree so we needed her to draw. You look a hero now that she's won but if she didn't win I would have looked a fool. I always had faith in her because her work has always been very good. She's going to go to the sales now so it's job done and we'll try and get a few quid for her now.

Miss Mcilroy when she gets crowded out of it she throws in the towel but she always run well here and I said to Kevin to ride her on the outside and what a ride he gave her. She has been unlucky here a few times and I had a horse finish second at Naas earlier today as well. My horses are running well, I have 10 riding out for the summer and have five more to come in.
