Lord Rapscallion he came out of the last race really well but I thought it was going to be a bit of a tougher ask today meeting Jessie’s (Harrington) horse (Calling Time) on different terms. We have done okay with these Alhebayebs but they are taking time. He has plenty of ability and has clicked into gear now. He likes the surface and the eye shields have definitely helped him.

Lustown Baba I’m thrilled for the syndicate. One of the syndicate owners (Laurence Sheedy) bred her and didn’t sell so all his friends got into her. They are from Lustown near Dunboyne so that’s how she got her name.

Lustown Baba She is a big mare and she isn't slow for an Alhebayeb. The mare has bred all winners, she is a good mare and the syndicate of lads from Dunboyne have (lease) her and one of the lads own her,. She is a lovely big mare and as a three year old we'll see the best of her. She qualifies for the Final in Naas, she loves that ground so we'll see if we keep her in for that Naas race. I told Nathan (Crosse, jockey) to mind her a bit the last day as the ground was a bit quick for her and she is still green. That track is wonderful out there.

Borelli I thought coming here today that we had a lot of horses with good chances. Andy rode this lad last time and said he was staying on nicely. We knew he’d get the mile well and that he’d like the cut in the ground,. He’s a horse that we thought a bit about and he’s lost his way a little bit. He’s probably a bit mentally immature and blinkers on today helped him concentrate. When he hit the front he was only getting going. For a horse by Alhebayeb he stays well.
