Annie Irish the horse that won the previous race (William Ashford) was drawn 15 and came up the left-hand rail and because Annie Irish misses the kick a bit, we decided to do the same thing and Colin gave her a beautiful ride. She got hung up in the stalls three runs ago and had to be withdraw and had to stand in for two or three week with a cut after that. It then took a while to get her fit again and it's good to have her back and she loves this place and always runs well. We'll keep tipping away with her and she might do a bit of Dundalk and she's missed half the season.

Whizzzey Rascal I'm delighted as she was scoping dirty all summer and I couldn't get her to scope clean. She's a half-sister to Clondaw Warrior and will probably go to the Tattersalls Broodmare Sale in November. We'll try and nick some black-type before then and there's a three-mile handicap hurdle at Gowran for her but I don't know if she will get into it. She is what she is at this stage but getting black-type would help her in November.
