Last Goodbye That is a plan landed! He was going really well in the Troytown and split the fourth last. He made a small bit of a noise coming up the straight and Mark (Walsh) just left him alone. I felt there was one of these races in him on his run at Cheltenham last year (fifth in the Close Brothers Novices Handicap Chase). He got in awful trouble there and two horses came down in front of him and he stormed up the hill. We just kept him wide today and fitted blinkers and a tongue tie which did the trick plus he got a beautiful ride from a very good 7lb claimer. If the ground is better in Cheltenham we may look at three miles because he was flying home last year.
