Ellaat That was grand. I didn't think it was going to happen after he jumped out of the stalls. He normally wings the gates but he walked out today and I stopped looking and thought this has gone wrong,.

Ozzie's Way I would have settled for a dead heat to be honest! It's a long run down from the third last,. To be honest he was a different horse today. It's a pity Tim (Conroy) couldn't be here. He bred him and he is a great racegoer. It is a pity he couldn't travel today. We had a frustrating enough evening as a few didn't run up to scratch so it is good to get a winner. We'll possibly look for a beginners' chase for him, one of those rated beginners'. He jumps well and is from a very good family.

Make A Challenge Joey said there might not be much pace so I told him not to be afraid to go on if they are only hacking and he did. He’s well able to ride, and if he can keep his feet on the ground and stays working away hard we’ll make a job of him. He’s signed on to me and he’s a good worker. If he keeps the head down he has a right good chance as he’s light and rides well. The yard is rocking and it’s good that they are still in good form as we are heading to Epsom on Saturday. I’m looking forward to it. Hathiq is in super nick. He went off at mid-day today. He got 11lb but just has a 4lb penalty on Saturday and has a brilliant draw on the stands’ side in 18. I know it’s a massive step up but he deserves to take his chance at the weights. He’s bounced out of the Curragh but he’ll have to change gear again at the weekend.
