Albigna she got a little bit warm at the start but really has behaved beautifully and was very relaxed. Shane said it just took her a while to realise what she was doing but she came between the two horses and put her head down. He gave her two slaps and that was all. We’ve always liked her and thought she could run very well but wasn’t sure if she could win this evening. She’s a lovely filly, and will have learned plenty in behind. She’s going to be better when she goes over seven furlongs. We just wanted to get this race out of the way first and haven’t made any plans.

Polished Steel it’s been a lucky race for me. He (Polished Steel) was always going to come here and had a break before Fairyhouse. He stood off too far at the second hurdle there, made a terrible mistake and then never jumped another hurdle. We decided today to change the tactics if he would settle and we put ear plugs on which helped him settle in front. He likes a bit of nice ground. He can cope with soft ground but not heavy. He’ll probably go for a mile and a half or mile and three quarters race on the Flat next.

Onlyhuman he was a bit unlucky in Leopardstown and has done it well today. He will get 1m4f and as long as there is a bit of an ease in the ground we'll keep going with him. We said we were going to step him up in trip because he is going hurdling. He is a super jumper, I have him well schooled and that's probably why he is settling better. He will go hurdling after the new season starts on May 1 but I might give him another run in a flat race before.
