Low Sun it's nice for Katie as she hasn't ever got the real pick of the rides and to land one like that is absolutely fantastic. Katie has been there through thick and thin and it's very hard for lady riders to get chances but she took her chance when she got it. We know he is as lazy as sin and Paul (Townend) was saying to Katie to keep slapping and agitating and to just keep him going. She said after every hurdle he'd pull up and she'd have to get him going again but he seemed to have a lot in the tank. It was a grand surprise and he was the second lightest weight of ours and definitely the weight just suits him. It was a nice pot to land with him, especially as he wasn't one I was planning on keeping. He'll mix it during the summer and he'll probably go to Punchestown and then go back on the Flat.
