Shin A Vee That's great. I train just five minutes away from the track and Martin (Kennelly, owner) is just two minutes further away, so it's a local trainer and owner,. They do a fantastic job here. I walked the track an hour before racing and it was in phenomenal condition. He won well last year but I thought he was better this year and really up for it. We knew he was in good form and pretty fit. He's 13 now and obviously it's a concern coming here as he's a year older and with a 5lb penalty but in fairness to him he came back in better nick. It was the same as last year. We had one day in mind and it worked last year. He's a horse that works well at home and you can get enough into him.
