Mm Sixsevei She's been going very, very, well at home. I don't have her overly long. She was in Paul Deegan's and he sent her to me in good nick. He had a high opinion of her and told me what to do with her to be honest, so credit to him. Pat Khvedelidze, who rides her out every day, gets on very well with her and he told me she wouldn't be beaten. It's new owners in the yard, Mrs Martinelli, they have a stud down in Athy and she loves this filly. I wasn't expecting to win that far but being owner breeders I'd say they'd love to get black-type. Paul was delighted with her first run and he said she was a bit weak last year. He said she's got a lot stronger. I don't know what to make of that really. A lot of jockeys were coming in saying they didn't handle the ground but she did.

Brave Display I'm delighted. He's been up in Dundalk and I knew he needed a break from there,. I was worried that the ground would be so soft and he had a lot of weight. I spoke to Willie (McCreery) and said to him I might claim. He said that horses run for Cian. Cian's father Mark is my vet so it was a great result. He's a great fun horse and is after winning four races in the last 12 months. I thought he was as high as he wants to be and the 10lb claim was the key.
