Monzoon He had two lovely runs in maidens this year at the Curragh and Gowran but then ran on soft ground in handicaps at Cork and Punchestown,. He’s really a good ground horse and one for the all-weather. We did fancy him today and Mark gave him a great ride. I would love to keep him as he’s progressive and still only a three-year-old. I think he’ll be better with a bit of time. The key to him is the ground and I think he’ll stay a little bit further.

Longbourn We bought him off Eddie Harty and he had winter form (at Dundalk). His owner Amanda Torrens has had a rough time with a couple of horses getting injured in the winter time and we decided to try a flat horse for her, and it is great to get a winner. He is ground-dependent, needs good ground and we had him in last week, but the heavy rain at Limerick changed everything. He could keep going forward now. I thought giving the three-year-olds 6lbs might be a hard task especially in September, but he stuck to it very well. We'll stick to the flat and he could go back to Dundalk, but down the road he could also go jumping.
