Don't Let Go That's four winners in a row - it's amazing,. The conditions absolutely suited her and it wasn't the strongest contest in the world. She's rated 97 and is entitled to win it but that doesn't always work out as we know. She always pleased me at home but she disappointed the first two days, for whatever reason, and she's maybe just a typical mare and wanted a bit of time. It was a cracking run at Roscommon and she followed it up nicely there now. I'd presume the handicapper can't do a lot as she's entitled to win it. She'll go handicapping now and she's a nice mare to have. She has plenty of size and will jump a fence, she is related to Mighty Man. She's only five and has been on the go a while so we'll speak to Frank (Frank Berry - racing manager for JP McManus) and see what they are thinking but to get that under her belt is fantastic.

Prosperity Square That was super. He is some horse. That's twice now that I've been wrong with the ground. The ground had dried again on his last two runs, and when things are happening too quick for him he is too old to keep going. But when it's that bit softer, things are slowed down, he loves it and is able to operate better in it. Obviously he loves here as well, he is after winning three here, left-handed and right-handed! . We had thoughts of retiring him but they will be put on hold now. He won't go on winter ground, but there is still plenty of races for him. I think there is a 0-102 back here in the coming months. He is after winning six races and he is a fabulous horse to have. There is nothing for him at Galway. I took a chance with him today because there was a small entry. Rachael gave him a fantastic ride, she did exactly what I told her to do.
