Capital Force It was a bit disappointing the last day and he started to tie up a bit again today but I'm delighted he won. At Leopardstown it was on good ground and he'd have won six or eight lengths if the race was over two miles but I'll get him checked out just to make sure. I suppose it was tacky ground today, and I was worried about it coming here. My main thing now is to wait for better ground, and I'd imagine good ground is the key to him.

Some Plan He was a 145 over hurdles and is now 3 from 4 over fences and a Garde 1 winner so you can't fault him. I'd say he will go for the Arkle now at Cheltenham. He's entitled to go now, and Roger loves to have runners at Cheltenham. It's been a great week for the Brookhouses. He fell at the second last in Cheltenham when going well so things have turned around our way today. It was disappointing that Identity Thief went at the first. He's generally a brilliant jumper and it was just a silly mistake. Hopefully we will get him back on track in the coming weeks.
