Snowstar she's rated 79 and that's a 50-80 race so I said I'd throw her into it because she'll be gone out of that now. The hope was to win and we'll probably head for a Listed race at the end of the month in Tipperary next. The whole thing with these sprinters is teaching them how to sprint and she's learning how to sprint. I thought Nathan gave her a lovely ride and did exactly what I asked him to do as well. The bit of cover helped her a lot. Today she still idled a bit when she hit the front but she put it to bed very quickly. She travels like a sprinter and is improving all the time.

Raramauri Nathan did what he was told, gave her a lovely ride and she was nicely balanced the whole way and did it well. She is a full sister to Downforce and she is a smashing little filly. You probably won't see her again for the year because she is a light-framed filly. She is very honest and I just want her to grow into herself. Today was the first day she had a bit of an ease in the ground and she is a different filly on it - maybe like Downforce. I bought her as a present for my wife (Amanda) from Maurice Burns - so happy days. Although she called me and told me 'why didn't you tell me to come down?!'

Outside Inside That was grand. She is a nice filly and I always thought she was, it has just taken her a few runs to learn her job. She was half pulling herself up until the other horse came beside her and she went on again then. I think the nice ground really suited her. She loved that beautiful ground. The last day the firm ground at Fairyhouse just didn't suit her. She had a bad draw that day as well. I'm glad for Garrett and Anna (Freyne), it's my first winner for them this year. If she ends up as good as Colour Blue, who was by the same sire, we'll be happy. She probably will go for a sales race at the end of the year but we'll see what's around beforehand.
