Island Master That was like watching paint dry! He was running well enough and he deserved to get one but the trouble was to place him, and I actually thought it was too soft for him today. In fairness to the young lad (Darragh O'Keeffe) he got stuck into him and was good. He picked up for him and he kept driving; he's not an easy ride, he's a young man's ride. He took a bit of driving and Darragh is a fit young fella. He has a great owner Tom Murphy, who works in the golf course in Midleton, and he is on every month before he gets the bill looking to pay you; he is a really genuine owner and I'm delighted for him to have a bit of luck. Tom has had great fun with him but he has thrown away a few races in the past when idling in front.
