Monstrosity Paul said he did it well, he wouldn't want the ground any quicker than it is but I thought that myself,. He's a big lump of a horse and he'll probably go and jump a fence, depending on the ground. We'll get over that first. I was a bit anxious about the ground but in fairness to them they did a good job. The time of year it is, it's difficult. He's a solid horse. He's big and strong and keeps galloping. Onwards and upwards.

Humm Baby She is a good money-spinner and she is after growing two inches over the summer; she is not small now,. I'm delighted having a winner as I thought I had forgotten how to do it! . I don't know where we go next but any time I wanted her she has won when fresh. I didn't enter her for Ballinrobe on Tuesday as you wouldn't pull her out quick.

Presenting Mahler When she gets her chance in front she is super. Kevin did a great job and got into a lovely rhythm jumping and she was just super. She's a lovely mare. She is owned by my dad's first cousin Paddy McKeon so it's a real family affair. Unfortunately dad can't be here today as he has been a little unwell for a couple of weeks. She has been in great form and is looking super so we were confident because she is pretty consistent. Tisamystery (who finished fourth) is obviously a very good horse, he has won some very good races. This is one of her best wins and we are delighted. She'll probably stay going for the summer.

An Fraoch Mor He had the form to win it and should improve from it. When he gets to the front he looks around and is a bit leery. He will probably be better in a faster run race. He travelled very easy. You see the size of him, he is probably a three mile chaser. It's great to get it and it's great for his owner Tommy Ward who has a couple of horses with us. He will be minded and will probably have another run over hurdles. He'll have a summers grass then and be back next year to jump a fence. He is a lovely staying horse, a real three mile chaser down the road. He nearly wasn't qualified for today. He was going to be third the last day in Naas but made a mess of the last and just got beat on the line, so it worked out for the best!

Kilbarry Calling He gave her a wonderful ride and when Denis fell, it was his misfortune but our good luck,. He said that when she got to the front she was very lairy and would have been better with company. It is great to get a win with her and her sister won for us as well. She is a huge mare and if anyone wants to buy her all the better.

Battle Of Midway It's great to have an owner that doesn't mind running two!. I said to Eddie yesterday I want to run and he said 'then I would run him because I think the other lad is beatable'. I'd say that's it for the season now. I wouldn't think he'd run again. Mark said he felt he wasn't mad about the ground but I hope he's wrong!

Chris's Dream he really toughed it out there which was good to see. Rachael got a great tune out of him and he jumped brilliant, bar maybe the last. We just said we wanted to try dropping him in again and see. It seemed to suit him well and he was able to jump his way into it no bother so that was great. I'd say you'd have to look at the RSA now. I think he's entitled, I have to speak to the owners and see what they'd like to do but I wouldn't see why not. The ground might be my only reason why not — it's as good as he'd want it there today but he was good. I'm delighted to get it for Robcour.

Annie Odds She has always shown ability at home but took a while to come together. She had a nice run the last day and I thought she'd improve out of it and while she was a big price today, we didn't think we were out of the picture. She is a good mare and will move on from this. She is for sale and if she isn't, we'll continue on and is up to Listed class. We are more point to point people but have the odd one for the track. I'd take more for the track if I could get them but point to points are our game buying and selling. That's my third track winner and it was lovely that my cousin Jack rode her. He's heading back to American shortly so he can go back on a winner now.
