Sonaiyla we ran against her once at Leopardstown last year and I was very impressed by her. Ruairi O'Coileain, of Ennistown Stud, was my first outside owner and when I saw this filly catalogued at the sales, I told him 'I'd like you to buy this filly'. To be fair to him he did and I'm delighted to get today's result and I'd like to say a special thanks to Ruairi. She is a very well bred filly and has Sinndar's pedigree and has now won her Stakes race so we'll try and get a Group race next.

Lynn Britt Cabin Chris said she was green but got the trip well. I was worried whether she'd get it being by Dark Angel but she could get a mile,. She is owned by an owner/breeder, Craig Bernick, who would like to get black-type eventually and I think that is achievable.

Kinch I'm absolutely delighted for Jonny Hayes who has been supporting the yard for the past eight or nine months,. I had a good conversation with him on the way up and told him I really fancied this lad so hopefully he had a few quid on him. It's great to get a high profile owner into the yard like that, getting the support behind me, and to reward these owners like that is brilliant. It was a brilliant ride by Donagh.

Billyfairplay he missed the break and I was worried for a while as he was behind and wide. Ben gave him a great ride as he caught a hold of him before he turned in and one thing about him is he tries hard and stuck at it well. It’s nice to get him to win again. He went up 17lb for winning by eight lengths one night. The handicapper got a hold of him and then he was second in Wolverhampton and ran well here last week.
