Leopardstown Thu, 9th Aug, 2018
Ice Cold In Alex It was ideal conditions with lovely quick ground and seven furlongs is probably his optimum. He was just worried out of it at Naas last time by a filly from Coolcullen who kept going like they always do from down there. They went a nice even pace and Niall was delighted with him. He seems to be in very good form at the moment and may come back here for Champions Weekend. He’ll probably be entered over six (at the Curragh) as well. The way he likes to be ridden with a full field you would want all the gaps and all the luck. Connections are getting great fun from him.
Curragh Sat, 21st Jul, 2018
Ice Cold In Alex He's been knocking on the door and he's got just rewards for his consistency,. Apart from his first run back of the year, which he needed and it was very soft ground at Navan, the rest of his runs have been consistent. He was second at Leopardstown and the last day here, on Derby weekend, he just got into a bit of a barging match and didn't get to run his race. We said that day that we'd wait for this. He likes the Curragh, likes level fair tracks, and it's great that all his connections are here today to enjoy it. He's a great fun horse and hopefully he might get another win before the season is out. Seven or a mile is good for him and he actually won a five furlong sprint here last year so he's quite versatile but just likes quick ground. He's in again on Wednesday and we'll see what the handicapper does. We'll see how he comes out of it. Galway probably wouldn't suit him. He likes galloping tracks and likes to come off a strong pace.
