Aspen Belle The reason we came here is because Dundalk wouldn't be an option for her. This was the only game in town. Leigh always thought six was a bit short for her, so we said we'd take our time and drop her in. She's very hard on herself and lives on her nerves a bit. He gave her a lovely ride. They went very hard which played into her hands, and she loves a cut in the ground. It's a nice surprise when they do that. We might keep her in training next year. Tom (Brennan, owner) is in two minds but when things go right for her she's a right tool.

Reckless Lad Killian was on early in the week looking for the ride, and he's just one behind (Oisin Orr) now (in the apprentice championship). We said that we'd go the brave route and he likes to come between horses,. Killian was on the outside and he said he's not liking this at all so he went to the inside and found a bit of trouble and that woke him up. He showed a nice turn of foot. He's had his problems and we put him in at a very realistic price tonight (€9,000). We could lose him but he's eight in January and has given us a great bit of fun. He's been a great old servant. It was a very intelligent ride and he's a very good young fella.
