Attribution he (Attribution) is game, tough and honest and he jumps. He had loads left but got lairy in front and it’s great to get the win. At the top of the hill, he (Ballyoisin) was in trouble as he went very quick and won four days ago and that might have taken its toll on him, as he is a very very good horse. My lad is no slouch either and was only 5lbs wrong at the weights.

Our Dougal in fairness he deserved that and has had some cracking runs and I’m delighted for the Mangans (owners). He was good there, jumped really well and it wasn’t out of turn - he’s a 128 rated beginners and his first run over fences was this race last year! It was no harm though as he’s a big horse and is still only filling his frame - he’s absolutely massive. There’s plenty fun to be had with him and while made mistakes in the past, jumped impeccably there and Andrew (Lynch) gives him such confidence jumping - he just lies down their neck jumping and that lad loved it. He’ll run in the Grade 3 2m2f novice chase at Galway next - Jimmy (Mangan)s goes to Galway every year so I’d imagine he’ll run there.
