Spirit Of Valor It's tough going out there and the ground is softer than we thought. It's good for him to do it in that. He works well with an ease but that's a good bit more than an ease. I think he'll prefer much better ground. I had thought he'd handle the ground better and had thought about looking at the Killavullan at Leopardstown but now I don't know. He struggled a bit and I thought he would have won easier. It's possible he may be finished now.

Galilean He's tough, stays well and horses aren't making up a whole lot of ground here today so I said I'd ride him confidently from the front and he kept going. He'll make a stayer next year.

Taj Mahal He's still a big baby but it's a step in the right direction. He's a horse that we have always thought plenty of and the trip was a bit sharp but he got away with it as it was a drop in class.
