Oscar Knight He had a wind op since the (Irish) National, and the run in Punchestown brought him on nicely for today. His hurdle mark looked favourable compared to his chase rating, and he could go for a big handicap chase around Christmas or the Thyestes. He will probably run over hurdles up to that.

Top Othe Ra The ground was too heavy for him in Listowel and his previous run to Lagostovegas was a good run,. He's in all year but he has been working well and showing that he was fit and well to come here. Paul gave him a lovely ride. He's in the Greatwood but that could be biting off more than we can chew. We'll see and we're after getting that pot and he absolutely owes me nothing. It's a pity David wasn't here to ride him but he broke his collarbone. His main target will be the Galway Hurdle and he'll have enough weight to get into it now, whether he's good enough

Grand Partner He'll go for the Naas November Handicap over a mile and six. Billy said he never travelled today but when he got going he got going well. The main thing is to go chasing with him, and he'll make a grand chaser.
