Premier League We fancied him all week for this. We thought he had improved from last year. He was working with the horse that ran here last week (Early Call) and he was better in than some of them there. Gary said he found it hard to settle him and he needs to learn to race properly. He's a big strong horse but he was a weak horse last year, it takes time. We wouldn't normally have come here but for the meetings being changed. Most of my horses like a bit of give in the ground.

On The Go Again Gary said they didn’t go that fast early on and he hit a bit of a flat spot in the straight but when he hit the rising ground he was away. He’s after having a hard start to the season so he’ll go on his holidays now and hopefully come back for the Galway Hurdle. That’s the big plan, and he might have a prep run somewhere. We like winning at Bellewstown so maybe we could go there. That’s my first Listed winner but I’ve never had a horse like that before. Tough As Nails was a great horse but this horse is so versatile, tough and honest, and he always gives his all.
