Smiling Eliza She’s honest and she tries. There is a mares’ Listed hurdle at Aintree she could go for and we’ll try and get some black type. She’s done more than we ever expected her to do. We’ll keep her going while the ground is good and she wouldn’t run on real winter heavy ground. Elysian Plains bolted going to the start and did the same for Rachael (Blackmore) at Gowran the last day. We may look at going back to the Flat with him.

Tombstone Davy Condon does a sterling job with this horse at home; he can be difficult and Davy is the only one who rides him. He has run to his mark there, beating the second rated 142 rated horse giving him 2lbs. It was a lovely opportunity for him and he has won a nice race there.

Silver Star he was one of out better chances coming here. He travelled well throughout and he did it grand and everybody is happy. He has loads of different roads to go - he can go on the Flat and over fences. The owners (Royal's & Blue Syndicate) are all Summerhill men so we are hopeful it's the start of a very big weekend for us (Summerhill play Dunboyne in the Meath SFC final on Sunday).

Woods Well He's a grand honest horse. Ours normally all come on from their first run and I thought he'd come on from it as well. Davy said he had a nice blow. The race suited him, he gave him a good ride and he jumped well. That's why Davy is so good. If they had gone an end-to-end flat out gallop it would have played straight into Rashaan's hands. Rashaan was only getting going at the end. It was a nice race to win. I'd say we'll look at the Troytown at Navan with him.

Cecil Corbett He's a grand honest horse and Denis gave him a peach of a ride,. We used to think he wasn't getting three miles and then ran him over two and he looked like he wanted further. Denis gave him a good ride and I'd say he loved the ground. He wins a race or two every year in fairness to him. When the rain comes and ground goes soft it would be a worry for him but he has his job done now so it's grand.
