Foxy Lass She improved no end from Listowel but I hadn't got a chance to gallop her since, I knew she was sharper but I didn't think she'd find that much improvement,. She had the experience and they have to be jumped - she's game too. The syndicate are from all over the country. They didn't have a massive budget and they went to Ascot sales. Colm Sharkey recommended this one out of Willie Haggas'. She only cost three and a half grand. I was willing to pay five for her on the day. I couldn't be happier for them. They're a nice bunch of lads. They're fierce sporting - even when she wasn't winning they were happy.

Meadow Cross Ian was the winning of that; I said to him to take his time as she loves passing horses. She takes a while to get going and he was cooler than I told him to be though!. She is a lovely big mare and it was hard to believe she was still a maiden but has ran into one or two down the years. Chasing will be her job and the blinkers back on today were a help.

Mezajy He did it well. He had good form on good ground and the ground suited him lovely. He ran a good race in Kilbeggan on that ground. Galway had gone too bad for him but, Galway being Galway, everyone wanted to run. . He was probably overpriced today, I couldn't believe it. I told the boys I would have been happy if he was half the price (of 14/1). He'll be entered in Listowel but he'll only go there if it is good. . John Mahon in the syndicate is a Longford man based in New York. He is represented by his son John today.
