Ballyoisin Barry was saying he's slicker going left handed but the ground is everything for him,. A conditions race at Limerick could be next. As regards Galway and the Plate, I don't know if there's enough jumps coming home there for him. Jumping is his asset and he wants the ground really good. Barry and himself are a match made in heaven.

On The Fringe We left the blinkers off today and claimed the 7lbs and tried everything because coming down, I realistically didn't think we had a chance with Minella For Value with the way he beat him in Killarney but he pulled up and I hope he is ok,. He (On The Fringe) travelled really sweet and Aine gave him a lovely ride and got the inner the whole way around. The first phone call I got coming down off the stands was from Ms (Nina) Carberry so we're all delighted. I was just so nervous coming as I wanted him to finish in one piece but we're not going to make any decision (regarding retirement) today. He has been my best horse with what he has done.
