Celebrity Status I'm not shocked by any means as we've always thought a lot of him but he's just never put it together on the track. He's run a few good races but never finished his race out well. We've never see the horse on track that we have seen at home. In fairness to Michael and John O’Flynn they have been very patient and given me every chance with him. Today was nearly last chance saloon. He did burst in Thurles and that set him back head wise. We said we'd pop him off in front today as he jumps well and had so much experience. It was a lovely opportunity for him, and he could go back over fences.

In A Pinch That was grand, she is an easy mare to train. Paul gave her a grand ride and everything worked out. I thought it might be a bit sharp for her around here but she handled it well. She is only a small mare and she'll probably go for a similar type of race now, we'll see what the handicapper does.

At Your Ease If ever a horse was ridden to the letter, he was! The mistake at the first didn't do any harm as if he winged it he might have been too free so it helped him get switched off. Donagh gave him a beautiful ride,. He has ability but wouldn't want to be in front for too long. That will give him confidence and I don't know whether he'll keep going for the summer - probably not but he might get one more run in a handicap.

Ballymadun We have been waiting for this horse for soft ground. At the top of the hill four out he had everything covered so it went to plan. The quick ground wasn't suiting him and lucky it came right for him today.

Insult he doesn’t show a whole lot at home so it was a pleasant surprise in Tramore (when finishing second), and that has turned out to be a good maiden hurdle. He’s progressed again and Rachael gave him a super ride. Chasing will be his game next year, and you would hope he will get three miles. We might look at the novice handicap in Fairyhouse.
