Wingingit There is a three-year-old handicap worth E50,000 at Navan (on June 3rd) but I was worried that she would not get into it. She was very buzzy but is so relaxed and laid-back now. She is very clear winded and is so easy to train. She did only one piece of fast work since her last run. She could go for that race in Navan now.

Clara Sorrento He said he didn't quicken but he kept galloping. He said he loved the ground and even found it a little bit slow for him. He said he'd like it even quicker. He seems to have gotten over the hanging that he did that day in Fairyhouse, whatever was wrong with him. We'll continue on for the summer. When you win a maiden hurdle it's hard to win the next one. It's nice to win a novice race with him. I'd say the way he ran here at the festival there is a handicap in him. It was just too short for him and he didn't get into it. He came home like a lion. Summer ground is the key to him. When we ran him in Navan over two six we thought he didn't stay but it wasn't that he didn't stay it was just that he just couldn't handle the soft ground and got legless in it.

Mr Showtime He is a totally different horse on that ground - it's quite incredible the difference it has made to him. It's funny, when he was going out on the track on fast ground in his bumper at Roscommon he nearly gave a buck and a squeal when he got out on it and lit up on it. He jumped brilliantly and will give us a bit of fun during the summer. The reason I dropped him back in trip, from his bumper win, was he would be running here with a winners' penalty so I had to come here. He'll probably go for a winners' race but he jumps so well, you wouldn't be afraid to put him in a handicap either. He has plenty of boot and is from the same family of Denman.

Art Of Synergy I told him (owner Munnelly Support Services Ltd) last week I was putting him in the sales (Goffs UK Spring HIT entry) and now I have to tell him he won!. He had a wind-op and when we ran him in Navan he ran very bad. Maybe the heavy ground was just catching him out. He was much better today. Sean said he didn't make any noise, travelled well and jumped reasonably good. He stays really well and is a lovely big horse so I'm sure he'll make a nice chaser. I suppose I'll have to see if I can get him to keep him now!

Mr Showtime He was a totally different horse on that ground and travelled like a dream. He'll go on for the summer now. He’s from the same family as Denman and will run over two and a half miles plus. He was a bit unlucky not to win one day at Tramore. He'll go jumping now.

Fly Rory Fly He's lazy. I'd say he will probably be better jumping fences. He's a big horse but he does seem to handle the ground so I'd say we will keep going. I wouldn't be surprised if he does go over fences sooner rather than later. I wouldn't be surprised if he turned out in that novice hurdle at Kilbeggan next week either. We'll see how he is when he comes home. He wants a a really good gallop, the quicker they go the better.

Dodgybingo He loved the ground and jumped brilliant. He doesn't like when they get around him,. That was ideal, sharp track, jumped great, fast ground, four-year-old's only, bob's your uncle!. He might come back here again, wherever the ground is fast. If the handicapper takes it literally he will be in trouble, but I don't know how literally he will take it. He is a summer horse and we will keep going with him. He will probably have a run on the Flat somewhere as well, although jumping does seem to help him a lot. He never made one mistake today. It's nice to get a winner on the board at the start of the season. We just got clipped yesterday with Net D'Ecosse, another stride and he was up.
