Three Wise Men this was nothing to do with me - Michael (Mee, local owner) called this race after he fell in Punchestown (in May); I was going to Wexford for a beginners’ but Michael quite wisely said to wait for this race at Galway. Thankfully he did and Noel was brilliant on him; he did exactly the opposite thing to what we had agreed in the ring but plans are made to be broken! Shur wasn’t he right as he (Three Wise Men) was loving it; the plan was to ‘sit in’ a little bit but you don’t want to be tying these guys when a horse is jumping as well as he was and win lose or draw, he had done the right thing. He has a provisional entry in a handicap chase here on Sunday over course and distance and I’ll see what the Mees want to do. We’ll see how he is but he also has plenty nice options coming up. I’m delighted and delighted to get one for the Mees here - I know its a big week for them and they are great supporters of the festival.
