Baroness She ran very well first time out (at the Curragh) and then ran back there on very bad ground on her second run and hated it, and then got flittered coming out of the stalls at Dundalk and the race was over. She kind of ended up well handicapped by circumstances. It was nice to see her do that and Donnacha gave her a lovely ride. I'd imagine that will be it for this season, and she should make up into a nice middle distance filly next year. She might progress and get some black type. We always liked her.

West Coast Time He was quite leery and was very green at his hurdles but he's a nice horse and had good bumper form,. He had a good look at the first and he even had a good look at the second last. No harm done though. I was watching it from the stands so it was hard to see but he jumped the fourth last and kind of ended up in front. For his first run over hurdles he was left in front with plenty of time. Still and all it was lovely. He should stay further as well. We'll think about stepping up in trip but he'd definitely be better when we can drop him in a bit more. We'll look for a novice and I don't think we need to go aiming too high yet.
