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.

Askann On her chase form she had to have a chance, . She had been running well in fairness to her. That's always the way she sort of runs - she finishes off her races well. In Ballinrobe where she was second in a beginners' chase she finished like a train. We brought her back for a wee confidence booster and she schooled well, so we thought she would run well. I had her in blinkers before and I thought she was maybe too keen. We put the cheekpieces on, dropped her out the back and let her creep away. It takes a bit of getting around here. A big, galloping track suits her.

Ask Heather I have to hand it to Liam, that was a serious ride. He got her jumping very well,. She probably wants three miles but it was a suitable race with her hurdle mark and I was a little bit worried about fitness but thankfully she got through it. We might chance her in the two mile and one furlong mares Grade 3 novice in Mallow in December. The owner would love to get a bit of black type as she’s related to Monalee.
