Bercasa She got 123 over hurdles and I gave her a run in Punchestown but I knew it was going to be a tall order in a handicap. It was just out of her comfort zone,. Niall (McCullagh) rode her here the last day and she just got a run on him. He said there as no way he'd ever make the running on her again and that she needs dropped in. He said she should win if she's dropped in the next day. I was delighted it worked out that way. Leigh was cool and Minnie Haha came off the rail. She'll mix it now. She wouldn't want it firm, or even good to firm. She wants comfortable ground like that. She might make up into a Galway Hurdle mare.

Bercasa She's a good filly - she's really stepped it up a lot since the break from last October,. She ran great first time out in Navan and she took us by surprise then last week at Leopardstown. She took on Niall McCullagh then - she was too free. He told us then to ride her differently.

View The Bay We rode her a bit differently tonight as she was kind of pulling up in front. We held on to her a bit more and it seems to have worked,. She got left here the last night she ran over five furlongs but it was her second run back and I'd say she bounced after her break. She won a seven-furlong maiden after being off for six months and I'd say she just bounced then. Tonight was her best performance yet. I was kind of planning for the six-furlong €25,000 race here in two weeks time. That was the plan whatever happened tonight.
