Disko It’s a great thrill to have one to jump as well that and it never really looked a problem, he was gaining ground at every fence,. Everything seemed to be going really well and it’s lovely to be able to watch something like that. You would never be confident in a Grade 1 especially with the lads in behind you. You never want to build your confidence up too much but I was happy when he jumped the last alright. There was only a half and a half between the three of them the last day and it’s only one good jump really. It might have been the trip. That trip seems to suit him and that’ll be the way we go I’d imagine. I’ll talk to Eddie and Mike and see what they say. He said the ground wasn’t as bad on that track and he loved it. I was slightly worried because he worked on very soft ground at home last week and I thought he wasn’t as effective on it. It was the perfect ride. He jumped great for him and did everything right. He jumped that well he got the others in trouble. I’d say Cheltenham ground will suit him alright - the usual Cheltenham ground. I would never think that he would want quick ground. He’s a beautiful moving horse.

Disko We're happy with him, he worked OK in the week,. He's dropping back in trip. He was staying on again over three miles at Christmas, so you couldn't say he didn't get three miles, but maybe the two-five might suit him well.

Texas Jack he's come down a lot in the weights but he's never won over further than two and a half miles before today (3m1f). He's been running in Graded races all the time and the drop down in class helped him and it's lovely to see him win. He was actually sold to go point-to-pointing to England but the vet wasn’t happy with him!. he’ll get an entry in the Irish National, and could go next for the Leinster National at Naas - he wants really soft ground.
