Shamad I'm delighted to win with him for Fergal (O'Neill) who is the main man in Direct Bloodstock. I bought him over in Newmarket and he came down to the yard and took the horse off me. He has a lot of horses in training but it's his first winner in Ireland today. He had a winner a couple of weeks ago with Dan Skelton. He'll tip away during the summer and he has a nice mark over hurdles. He'll mix it after a while. He's been plenty busy but he goes on nice ground. He's a fine looking horse and he's actually a great jumper. The whole thing was if we were lucky enough to win with him on the Flat we'd head on over hurdles. More than likely we'll head on over hurdles now and see what happens.
