Curragh Sun, 11th Oct, 2020
A Case Of You That's my first Curragh winner as usually if I have a good horse I stay away from the Curragh because the competition is so good but he justified coming here and was impressive. Colin (Keane) had done work on him during the week but had to ride for Mr O'Brien and he gave Gary advice. He won a barrier trial impressively and then I shouldn't have run him in Bellewstown (over a mile) and he won well in Down Royal. It's my first Group winner on the Flat. Shane Lyons advised me to go for this race and I doubt if he will run again this year. He's in the Foran race next week but I think we will leave that to someone else. He handled Dundalk well so he will have no problem on better ground. He's my own and I'd love to sell him. It would be great to sell him and stay in the yard. I wouldn't be surprised if he gets faster and faster and the dream could be something like a Commonwealth Cup.

Laurel Wreath She ran very well in Sligo and was very unlucky as she got badly bumped and was shoved out four wide. The track probably didn't suit her in Sligo but there weren't many six furlong races coming up for fillies so we took a chance. I think the draw beat us there, if we had been drawn three of four we probably would have gone close to winning. We knew Navan would suit her better, as it's dead straight. Maybe we'll try and get a little bit of black-type now. I stuck her in the Ballyogan Stakes yesterday and that's where she'll head now with a bit of luck. She's definitely improving, she stays six and is fast enough for five.
