On The Sod He's kind of a very underestimated horse. He's shuffly and not a great mover and a very plain, workmanlike horse,. When the ground gets good, and it is just borderline for him now, I'd have to stop with him and that would be it. You couldn't run him on good ground. That's four from four now. He's just a tremendously strong horse - he just gallops and gallops. That hill is made for him. He actually would be far better going left-handed where he won at Kirkistown (point-to-point) the first day. I decided I would run him at Armagh (Farmaclaffley point-to-point) to see if we could come here. When he handled Armagh, I thought we might get away with running here. Next year there is one winner and two winner hunter chases but that is a long way away at this time.

Ask And Answer Staying is his forte. He is bred to stay and he is a stayer and today was his best day jumping by a long way,. He ran in Limerick over Christmas when we thought he had a chance but Limerick can be extremely tough going and today suited. It was a handicap and he was rated lower than his hurdles rating and Eoin claimed 7lbs as well. Eoin has already ridden a winner, second, third and fourth for me and has been lucky for me. We'll look for another handicap chase next. I have ten horses in training but have loads of room for more.
