Dare To Flare He lost his chance at the start at the Curragh the last day and nearly lost it again today but he does that. He is after throwing away so many races that way,. I'll step him up to 1m2f as well and I'd say he could go jumping eventually. Being by Dandy Man you wouldn't think it but he is tough and keeps going on soft ground. I don't see why not and we didn't jump him yet but he is a good athletic horse so I'd imagine he'd jump.

Metier I told Mr Garvey that he had improved a stone since Down Royal. We gave him a break, he's a big raw horse. He could end up a Cup horse next year, he's so raw and big, he's a fair horse. This is as short as he'd want to go. He might end up going for this year's Irish Cesarewitch. I thought the ground mightn't be soft enough for him today. He'll go on any kind of ground but stamina is his thing. He's a mile-and-a-half, mile-six or maybe two mile horse eventually. He had a mark of 73 today but he won't have that now. It's all about next year with him. He ran here last year and was fourth in a goodish maiden but he was a big clown and didn't know what to do. He's still a bit the same and he said he was idling out in front and waiting for the horses. I think next year with a bit of luck he could be a very very good horse. We could be going for those nice staying races. That's where we are hoping to be.

Hereia The whole time he was running on the Flat the ground was too quick for him, so we had this planned a long time ago. He’s plenty of schooling done and he always jumped well. He’ll go to Listowel now for the winners of one and see where we end up. He did what we expected to be honest. Danny said he was idling a bit in front and said he’d like something to bring him on at a better gallop. He’ll keep galloping on soft ground.
