Bercasa We won a couple of races with her this year but both handicappers gave her a nice slap. I tried her over hurdles and the Flat since and couldn’t win with her so I gave her a break before Galway.

Nibiru He promised to be a nice horse but he's had his ups and downs. Things went right for him today. He won over six on the Flat and he showed that bit of speed there. As I've said he's been in and out, hopefully he can go on from here though.

Nimitz He's a grand old horse and is a pleasure to have around,. He'll probably to the Curragh for something next weekend once the rain stays away, the forecast is pretty good for next week. I have a sneaking suspicion though that he might be better off carrying weight against lesser horses rather than running in those premier handicaps.

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.
