Estepona Sun we're delighted with that. Ideally he wants an extra furlong and we were just worried about the trip today but there are no races coming up so we had to run him in that 0-80. He'll be a nice horse on the turf for next year over a mile and eventually he'll get a mile-and-two no problem. Gary was very happy with him and said he's very genuine, that's half the battle. He said he thought he was going to get there nicely but he just evened out and it took him all day in the last half a furlong. That's just basically down to trip. We're happy to get the win before Christmas and next year he'll be a nice turf horse.

Dubai Rainbow The owner is a better judge than me. He flew over from Trinidad once last year and she won and he flew over today and she won so he obviously knows more than the trainer,. I thought it was a pretty competitive handicap and I was particularly afraid of Hidden Spark (finished fourth). It's nice to win, he's a lovely man and he's had horses with me for a long time. He was introduced to me by Mick Molloy and the Kerr family. The Kerrs were very famous trainers in Clonee and trained a lot of top sprinters and milers back in the day. When they retired I got to train for him. He's been very good, a lovely man. He's ninety odd and he's in great nick. You won't see me at 92 unless you get a ouija board!
