Barna Venture That was great for Brid and Frances (Collison, owner/breeders) who are next door neighbours of mine,. This was a difficult horse but he's actually starting to settle well. Fair play to Shane Mulcahy who did all the hard work with him. He got injured off this lad in Naas, he fractured his sternum, so he left the ride for me today. I'd never ridden him in a chase but when I saw the decs yesterday morning I thought he had a big chance. He ran very well behind Seskin Flyer in Thurles and the winner franked that form in Limerick. It's great and they are all running well. I needed that as I got a few penalty points on the way up the road, so that will pay for that!

Moskovite she is a class mare but it was still not going to be easy for her over two miles carrying top weight as she is a 2m4f or 2m6f mare.We went an awful gallop for a handicap but they came back to me and she outstayed them.
