Tiger Voice he did it the hard way in the end and it seemed messy early on. He didn't jump the last two amazingly but kept going well and he was really good. He was disappointing last year but when you stand in to him he is a big horse and is only filling out now. It definitely wasn't my best placing performance running him at Tipperary (behind yesterday's Grade B hurdle winner Janidil) but I just wanted to get him out and decided to kick on so it was nice to get back to his own age and he didn't have a winners' penalty either. There is a 4yo only winners' race at the end of the month for him at Gowran and that is a possible.

Yulong Voice He had a good run around here but he didn't like the Curragh,. He was on the outside all the way up the Curragh and Shane couldn't get him to go at all. That's why we put the cheek-pieces on him and it probably helped him that they went very hard early on. He got time to get himself going. He took a while to get going and then he's won well at the end. He stayed well and he couldn't even pull him up. He's probably going to end up a mile-and-a-half horse. It's nice to have a winner for Mr Zhang. We'll see what the handicapper does with him now.
