Surrounding it was a lovely race for her taking on fillies only and obviously when there is an odds-on shot you are never confident, but it was an ideal opportunity to drop her in. We had a tongue tie on her for the first time. I’m not sure if it made any difference to her but we felt that she might benefit from it. She hit the line well, and it was nice that they went a good even pace. The owners are local and are great supporters of ours and they get a great kick out of it. If we could get her some black type that would be the ultimate aim for her.

Kalaxana She had a lovely run in Naas and was always going to appreciate the step up in trip. We’ll probably look for a bit of black type, and she could go for the Oaks Trial at Naas later this month. She’s a big girl and you would imagine she would only get stronger and improve with racing. She has a lovely attitude and handles that ground well.

Platinum Warrior You'd be delighted with that horse. He's a Galileo and we don't get too many Galileos,. He's a horse with a big engine, and always has had, and he loves that ground. He got a bit lonely there in front and wandered, he's done it in the past. I'd say the better the race the better he'll be. Shane said he got a bit unbalanced down the hill. He got there quick then. I think there is more to come from him and we'll aim him at the Irish Derby now. I'd say he'll step up to a mile and a half no bother. You'd have to like the way he goes about things, he keeps improving. He goes on that fast ground. He's out of a Clodovil mare so he'll maybe handle an ease too but he's such a light actioned horse. He ran a blinder the last day, it was his first time up to a mile and a quarter. He's just coming to himself. Our horses were slow to come to themselves over the winter and we had to be patient. The weather was bad, the ground was bad, and I wasn't pushing them. It was all about picking up from here on. He's one of those types that's getting better with racing.
