Cluan Dara That was grand. He's a nice horse. We'll skip Punchestown and wait for the likes of Ballinrobe and Sligo. It was very frustrating after he finished second to Samcro as we thought he'd win a maiden hurdle nearly 12 months ago. At least he's won at Fairyhouse and it was a nice pot. He's a brilliant jumper and is only a shell of a horse. The Scorpions take time mentally and physically but he'll be a nice horse for the summer. He has a bit of class but made hard work of that and I think he got headed. Tom said he had loads left and he's a stayer. He was also second to the horse that won earlier (Catwalk King) in a bumper. We have his half-brother by Yeats and he's a lovely horse, a speedier and better sort.
