Moll She's improved with every run,. We were going to wait for a seven-furlong race next week but we think she needs every bit of a mile and going forward we'll probably even step her up in trip. Conor felt that an extra two furlongs would help her. To get her maiden out of the way is great. I don't think there is too much here for her and we might give her a bit of a break and come back for the turf. We ran her first time out in Naas and she didn't appreciate the ground but it was very soft that day. I'd say she's maybe a good ground filly.

Guinevere she always promised to do that. Her last run was a very good run as she had no luck in running and got too far back. I fancied her tonight off a low weight. She has loads of ability but things have to drop right for her. Now that she has got her head in front she might win again. She will probably come back here in three weeks for a rated race over a mile and a half.

Romantically the step up in trip suited her and Nathan (Cross, winning jockey) was very positive which was important. I’m delighted for Johnny Connaughton, he bred her himself and it’s important to get a win for her for breeding purposes.

Degraves He travelled well, Shane said he quickened up very well and had a bit of a look when he got to the front,. He'll have his break now and come back for a nice race in the spring. He's a Camelot so he'll go ten furlongs anyway and then we'll go from there.

Lady Stormborn I brought her away to work yesterday morning, she ended up only doing a blow out. She was so well and I've never seen her to go like it so I rang (agent) Kevin O'Ryan and told him she'd run and she'd win. The lads had a small few quid on her here, they weren't listening to me. She's a good filly. The last two weeks she's after turning the corner to being a real good filly. I'm going to check up now and see if there is a Listed race before the end of the season. If not we'll probably put her away to next season. I didn't look beyond today and she was actually going to Dundalk next Friday night but she was in here and worked so well, so we came here. The only little doubt was that we thought she likes good ground. She's out of a good filly, her dam dam was rated 108.

Pasley He's still raw and he doesn't want the ground that bad either,. I was off the bridle the whole way and the last 50 yards he pricked his ears again so I think there is plenty in there. He's still learning. He stays well and around a more galloping track with a bit better ground he'll be better again.

King Pellinor He did it well. He probably didn't really get the two miles the last day, it's nice to get a win into him,. I think the blinkers helped, they were no harm anyway. He handled the ground fine. I kept him out on the fresh stuff early. In the straight he kept galloping and the loose horse kept me company.

Degraves He did it nicely. The form of his last run worked out really well so he was probably entitled to do that but I think he's a smart horse,. He had no problem with the ground, he seemed fine on it and galloped through it well. I think he'll get a bit further but he's not slow. He quickens well, travelled really smooth, so I think a mile is probably fine for him at the minute.
