Not Now Zeb He didn’t run too bad in Navan the last day. He’s a free little horse and Joey got on so well with Nam who is also free that I said I’d give him a go on this fella as well,. He just gave him his head a bit early on and let him roll rather than fight him. The chap obviously has talent to settle a horse and has great confidence in himself.

Blairmayne He's done very well and we're all very pleased,. He was in good form and we were positive coming here. He was a bit unlucky the last time in Leopardstown when he didn't get any run and he did well today. He loves the Curragh and Shane gave him a brilliant ride, he knows him well. He's so tough and honest and always runs his best. It's great to have a horse like that in the yard.

She's My Dream I used to think she preferred running around a bend but there was nothing wrong with her there. She ran as straight as a die and it’s great that she has won two races. She’s very consistent. We were getting frustrated at Dundalk over the winter and we thought she was never going to win but she’s just that bit better on the turf. Sean was in RACE last year. He had only one year to go in school so he went back and did his leaving cert recently. He rides well and could ride anything. He has great hands, he’s tall but his weight is not too bad. He did a good job there with hands and heels, and I think he only gave her one flick. He didn’t panic and for only his third ride he did very well.

Sunset Nova He's been knocking on the door and he's been ultra consistent lately. It was great to get his head in front and it was the lads' (Men Of Forty Eight Syndicate) first winner this year. We'll go to Galway now on the Monday night for the seven-furlong three-year-old handicap. Donie O'Connell and Pat Leahy are the two main men in the syndicate. Donie has a Tipperary function there, so he was always going there anyway. It was nearly six furlongs today and that will be seven up the hill. It might be a little bit of a worry but he's going anyway as the lads have a party on.

She's My Dream She’s been trying hard for a good while and hasn’t got her head in front. Perhaps she liked the little comfort in the ground as she’s been at Dundalk several times. She got out in front there and seemed to enjoy it. She quickened up and ran to the line well so we’re delighted with her. It’s great to win a race for Mr (Tom) Monaghan. It’s the first foal out of the mare and he’s got a nice Kodiac colt foal going to the sales later this year. We tried a mile as an experiment the last day but it didn’t work.
