Harry's Hill I thought his run here on his last visit was a serious run. Ronan was a small bit disappointed with him last time (at Tipperary) and said the ground was just too fast for him. He was bought in lockdown by two electricians and a publican, he was to go for the breeze-ups, so a red carpet should be out for them when things open! They were coming today and had it all signed up before things changed. The first day he ran with the choke out but the second day I thought it was a brilliant run (finished eighth of twelve behind Tar Heel). It was nearer six then and he just didn't get home. Ronan said he will get six. We'll see what the handicapper does now.

Overheer The reason we bought him is he is related to Ardbrae Lady who was second in the (Irish) 1,000 Guineas for me. He is from that family and is out of a Galileo mare and I hope he can improve from that again, and I'd say there is another race in him. He is a big block of a horse and he is versatile ground-wise; I saw him going to the start and he cut daisies and, when we ran him on soft he bent the knee so he is a clever horse.

Principalship He had been cutting out last year a bit, but kept going there and I'd say the jockey (Dylan Browne McMonagle) got the fractions right. That is his first ride for me and he is very bright and to win was grand. The horse was no mug last year, he had a rating of 78 and he had been second on soft ground at Tipperary one day. I didn't look beyond today.
