Tongie maybe we were running him over the wrong trip, and he made that look very simple. I had dreams of winning three-mile chases but in fairness David Mullins said this trip (two miles) was fine for him. It's a good day to get a winner, and he could come back here for a good handicap next month.

Head Turner I'm delighted with her now. She is jumping fences great and measuring them great,. Roger was brilliant on her. He was able to put the race to bed and he didn't have to fire her at the last then. He just let her settle and jump it. It's great when you can get the odd winner. So many things can happen and you need a bit of luck. She popped around. She won over a mile-and-a-half only last summer and that pace is there but you'd be worried would she be able to produce that kind of pace on this kind of ground. She'll go on soft, and she's won on soft, but if it's deep and tacky she just wouldn't be able to handle it. Obviously it's loose today. She was always going to be a better chaser and that's six races she's won now. We'll go for a similar handicap and go back to the mares novices and try and get a bit of black-type. We might try and be back here for the big meeting for something. Hopefully she stays sound and healthy.
