Beacon Edge he (Beacon Edge) had a colic at Christmas, spent nearly a week in Kildare (veterinary clinic) and he was just wasn't himself in Naas last time, but he's a fair horse. I wondered about him getting the trip but he stays. He's a very nice horse. Michael (O'Leary, owner) had it in his head that he'd go to Liverpool for the two-and-a-half mile race but he's in the Stayers. We have Diol Ker as well and we'll see what turns up in it. He was meant to go over fences this year but when we thought about what was coming out over fences we thought we might be as well staying where we are. We got it right the way it looks at the minute anyway. That was a nice prize today and a nice race to win.

Thedevilscoachman I was a bit disappointed with him at Leopardstown but Mark said he was very green. I don’t know where we will go next or what we will do but he’s a nice horse. He’s very laidback. He’s only just lobbing along until you want him and then he picks up. Mark said he didn’t think he was going anywhere and then he picked up when he asked him. I know he stays that (2m2f) but I’d say two miles is probably far enough for him. He’s bred to be quick enough.
