That was a nice first run of the season, and I’d imagine he’ll go for the National. That would be the usual route from here. We’re keen to go and the owner is keen to go,.

Quotes on The Storyteller (IRE)

I don't what happened. We got a bit of luck on our side and we needed it with the way the day started off,. It's going to be ding dong for the week and it just shows what can happen. I don't know what happened to Paul Townend, it all happened that quick. I was standing at the last and when I saw Paul going I wasn't sure if it had been bypassed. It worked out great for me so I can't complain. He's won a Grade 1 now and won at Cheltenham. The Sloans are massive supporters of the yard so I'm delighted for them. If it's like this for the week it'll be interesting anyway!

Quotes on Total Recall (IRE)

he was very keen and Paul didn't anticipate a slow pace and the horse just winged one or two hurdles and then was in front. He didn't want to be fighting with him in at the back so took a chance letting him on and hoped for the best. You wouldn't think a three mile chaser would want to go much faster but he was going so easy. I think the Bobbyjo Chase is probably next and it would look like he's a Grand National horse. He is still in the Gold Cup and I'll see what way it's working out but the Bobbyjo would look Plan A at the moment.

Quotes on Mary Frances (IRE)

When you're doing a double, you have to do it in your home track! That's my first double and she do it in style and never came off the bridle. She's a mudlark despite being only a pony and when Robbie Power rode her the last day, he said the day when it's almost unraceable, is the day she's going to win and he was right. It is hard to imagine because she is so small. She is a half-sister to Jazz Messenger and we'll take it race by race with her but will look for black-type eventually. I've only four horses in training and work full-time in Coolmore so it's a family operation. Last week was very frustrating and I spent five nights in a row getting up every hour to clear the gallop with the tractor but still we ended up missing three days exercising the horses. I was going to work as well and thank god the schools were closed because my young lad stayed on until 2am one morning and then I got up and did it then. The elements did eventually beat us and there's now a foot of snow on the gallop. This is great for everyone though and now we've a double up, we might feel like real trainers!
