Parisian It's a much better result than when Kay Russell, the owner, came over for Leopardstown (when the horse was withdrawn) and I think the stall handlers were in a rush home and the result was didn't load. It was very good of her to come over today for more so we were delighted. He was bought as a hurdler and that's what he will continue to do. He's a very nice horse and is by a very good stallion (Champs Elysees) and I think he's going to make his mark as a National Hunt stallion. It was one of the reasons I bought him because of his pedigree but he was also a winner when I bought him [of a handicap at Kempton for Ralph Beckett in April]. He'll run in the next winners' race. He was a good purchase - sometimes we get it right!

Dreamtide It was nice to get her off to a winning start. We'll stay over hurdles for the time being but I'll go back on the Flat with her later on in the season. Being a half-sister to Wicklow Brave it's nice to have her. She was very green once she got in front and Paul said she just dropped everything but she hadn't many runs on the Flat either and he thinks she's still learning. She'll hopefully improve from that and going on that ground is a big benefit.
