Grecian Divine That was super. She's a tough mare and she's probably even improving,. She's been busy all year and done nothing but improve. She's taken a fair bit of racing and she's done it well. We'll see how she is but we'd have to look at the Birdcatcher now. It gives her about four weeks. If she's well we might hold on for that. That's great. She has a good pedigree and can improve again hopefully. I was disappointed for Seamie in Listowel as he missed the ride on her. His assistance worked today and he's a big asset on board. The owners are good supporters. The horses are all running well so happy days.

Jack The Wire He's a good horse but it has taken him this long to come to hand. If you see the size of him, he's 17 hands, and it has taken him this time,. He is still improving but wasn't strong enough to handle the winter conditions last year. He went and won well at Galway on better ground and while I was worried about the ground today, he is a better and stronger horse now. He's belonging to my parents and I'd say they won't sell him but you wouldn't know. He was nearly sold but he was leaving the yard and I wasn't having it. It's great to have them here today. The future is chasing and he's as exciting as we have. Whatever he does over hurdles is a bonus but he's a novice hurdler for the year and maybe can go chasing later in the year. I've a good team of staff too and I'll have to give them a mention too.

Burren View Lady She's been very good, I think that's nine wins for her. I've had two or three with her and she has been with me the last year and a half to two years. She travelled well, she loved the surface and the new surroundings. She just travelled stronger than ever,.

Grecian Divine She is smart and has a nice pedigree but I thought she would have won her maiden a long time ago. She was fourth to Roly Poly but had an accident after that and it knocked her back a month or more. She is lucky to be alive as she had an accident with the walker and had a lot of stitches around her head. Ger Kelly and the people at Fethard (Veterinary Clinic) deserve a lot of credit. It's good to get her back, she's a good filly and had to be tough to get through that ground.
