Stoughan Cross It's fantastic to get a win with him, especially as his owner Jim Nevin is a local man. Hopefully that will put a smile on his face,. He likes Navan and has run well around here a few times. He seems to get his turn once a season, every season. Hopefully that's not it for this season because it's only his first run back, he's never won first time out but the horses are just in great form at the moment.

Clondaw Secret He’s a nice big, raw horse. I was toying with running him in the bumper today but I said I’d split them up. Jumping is probably his game. It’s great for Noel and Valerie Moran. They are the big sponsors today and are local people. It’s their first winner at Navan racecourse. I thought Jack (Kennedy) was very good on him. He let them all race away and had a go going to the last. If he got involved two out he would probably have got tired. There is only one winning post. He’s still very green. He might not be a graded horse and is probably more of a chaser.

Court Maid I told Rory Larkin (owner) that her target was the Irish National and she won here today with the prizemoney bumped up so it is great. She has the class and while she ran disappointed at Punchestown, everything went wrong for her then and I put a line through it and I was expecting a nice run today. She has a class pedigree and I knew when she'd step up (in trip), she'd improve. Today was the target and she is now a top novice over a trip so we'll see.
