Timetoget She deserved that. She was a bit unlucky in Listowel, and she had run very well here. Niall did a great job and rode her beautifully. His dad John, who has a pub in Bunclody, owns her, and they are off to Galway with her for the mares handicap hurdle,.

I'm So Fancy She deserved that as she was knocking on the door all last year,. People were saying does she really stay a mile-and-a-quarter but she won that by staying. She was very very good. She's in various races and I've just been running her in every race. She handles any ground, she goes on soft and goes on everything. Jim (Nicholson) isn't here today as he's in Portugal, and Homer (Scott), who owns half of her, isn't here because he hasn't been very well. We'll put her in all those mile and mile-and-a-quarter races.

Indigo Balance He was very good. He's a smashing horse with a lovely temperament,. He had been up to Dundalk for the barrier trial and had run very well there so he was like a colt today that had a run already. He was very professional. He's very straight-forward at home and has just always been a really nice colt. I thought he grew a bit there about two months ago and got a bit weak but he's now started to strengthen up again. I've no idea where he'll go now. I have to talk to Michael (Donohoe) and Mr Zhang. It's lovely to get a winner for him first time out. I have five horses for him and he's had two winners and a third now. He did it fairly easily and loved the ground. He's a very easy horse to run because you can switch him off and he can put him exactly where he wants. He went one way and then another way and then got a run. When he got to the front it's wide open spaces, he took a bit of a look and then put his head down and galloped to the line.

Servalan They are both very good and will go to Ascot although I’m not sure in what races they will run. We will see nearer the time. Servalan luckily missed the break a bit and Seamie dropped her in. When he pulled her out she was very easy and quickened up great. It’s nice to have two good fillies. They both came on well from their first run and will come on again.

Brother Bear He was the class horse in the race and it is good to get his head in front. It’s great to get him back on track. He had a good run here and that’s the first time he’s really had good to firm ground since last summer. He definitely appreciates it. He might go to Ascot for the Jersey. I’m not sure he’d get a mile at this stage — he might do later in his life. I think that is the logical step to go.

Jetez The drop back to two miles wasn't ideal for him and he could be very competitive on good ground in novice hurdles during the summer. He has plenty of experience and put that to good use and he wants 2m 4f. I’ve been waiting since the beginning of February for good ground for him. Two miles was a bit short for him so we will be looking for a two and a half mile novice.
