Not Now Zeb Some people thought he was lucky in Navan. The kid (Joey Sheridan) rode him well in Navan, took his time and came late. He's a nice horse. Since Navan they were telling me in the yard that he was improving every day, I was hopeful rather than confident. He only got 5lb for Navan, he couldn't really give him much more. He got a great ride today from a man that is riding like a man possessed. He knows where the lollipop is!. We'll see if we can get another handicap for him. He needs six and I'd say that's his ground, the slow side of good.

Rocky Blue I'm just after finding out that he mightn't be qualified for the Galway Hurdle. That was my plan so we may have another plan then if he's not. Maybe he'll go for the amateur handicap or the mile-and-a-half on the Friday. There is also the other hurdle that I won twice with Top Othe Ra. He'll be going nowhere in the morning if his legs are not good because he did break down a couple of years ago. He's in on Saturday but he won't run after today. I was only going to run there if it was too firm tonight. He could be an English Cesarewitch horse, there is plenty of money in that and we could also look at York. There is probably a real good handicap on the Flat for him and a handicap over hurdles with him as well. I think he was rated 132 when he signed off as a hurdler in 2018. He's a lovely horse. He's always playful and always wants to get on with the job.
