Basil's Boy He ran a lovely race in Tramore and the race didn’t really go to suit him — he got left in front and it was not ideal. But today they went a nicer gallop and he (Eoin Walsh) was able to get him relaxed. I was even wondering was he too far back, but he went wide and jumped his way into it. He can hit a flat spot, but the ground is probably a bit slow. He’s a handy bit of a horse and is after winning two and it’s great. We’ll see what the handicapper does. He likes the hills, I wonder would he handle Cheltenham!. I’ve popped him over a fence and he pops a fence, so we’ll see. I’ll probably put him into a better race now off a lighter weight.
