Castra Vetera She won well and I thought Neil gave her a lovely ride. She got a little bit lost off the bridle and came good up the hill. She learned a lot the last day in Leopardstown where it was a very messy race and she'll probably come on again from today. I'd imagine she will go to Aintree now for that mares' bumper.

Black Tears She's a great honest mare. She's been to every dog fight and she deserved that. She has been placed around Cheltenham and placed in numerous graded races so it's nice she got her day in the sun. It's great for Caren and Aidan Walsh, who are great supporters of the yard, and for Johnny Lightfoot who owns her as well. That was a brilliant pot. She's got a good pedigree so she's a valuable broodmare as well. Davy gave her a good ride as well. He was probably lucky he got the split up the inside.

Appreciate It “It was very impressive. The way he put away a field of what looked the best bumper horses in Ireland did surprise me but Patrick had way more confidence in him than I had.
“He was keen on him all the time. I thought it was a very tough race.
“I wasn't as worried about the trip as a lot of people were. It so happened it was a two-and-a-half mile bumper at Christmas that he ran in. He didn't need the trip then, he's fast enough.
“He looked like a Cheltenham type for me anyway. It was a very good performance and I'm very pleased.”

My Club Colours we were going to wait for three miles as I was worried about the tightness of the track. She was off the bridle the whole way in Fairyhouse the last day and Sean O’Keeffe said you may step her up in trip. In fairness she went away and won it. It’s job done.

Carrigeen Lotus She is a nice mare and just gallops. She came on some amount from the first run to the second run and I thought she had improved again. Today was a tougher test and there were a few alright mares in it so we thought we might be up against up it,. We are keen to hold on to her as she is the last of the Jeremys and has such a good pedigree but if somebody came up with money you couldn't refuse we'd sell. She is definitely capable of black-type and she is a nice mare who we like a lot.
