Flaming Moon The little bit further obviously brought out more improvement in him,. We were running him over a bit short looking at that now. He's done it well. We just wanted to see would he stay a mile today. He shows a lot of speed at home, even the likes of Master Matt, who is a five or six furlongs horse, wouldn't work with him. We said we'd try a mile and he's obviously better over further. It opens up a few options now. Last year I thought he was a proper horse. He ran a cracker here the first day and was unlucky a few times after. In Galway the last day he missed the break a bit and they came in on top of him. I'm happy with that. Kevin had his first winner today as well so it's been a good day.

Giorni Felice He probably did it too well but I'm delighted with him. I thought he'd win last week (finished sixth at Roscommon) but it was a helter skelter of a race, he got his throat cut and that was the end of it. He likes a bit of dig in the ground. Hopefully he can go in again but what will the handicapper do now!. He was rated 80 at one time. He was well thought of early on in Lynam's. He's come a long way down since then. I schooled him over hurdles and thought he was as good a jumper as I've ever seen but I brought him away to school with another horse and he knocked down every hurdle. He's in a good space at the moment though so might try him again as he goes on soft ground.

Poseidon He is consistent and ran up to his rating. He jumped really well and he likes that ground. He could run on the Flat also for the summer, and I'll look for something before Galway.
