It's a pleasant surprise again but not as big a surprise as the first day. I would have been disappointing if he didn't run well. I was quite happy turning into the straight that he was going to be a good third with two fair horses in front of him. When he got by Gordon’s horse I thought Ruby had a bit more in the tank but he joined him and he's done it well. It's a sharp two miles around here and I was worried about that. It was basically a winners of one. It was down as a Grade 2 but every one of them had won one race. It's a sharp track but his jumping was very good. I thought a few times during the race he was going as quick as he wanted to be and I said to young Ted 'he'll get caught out if he misses one'. He was good though. It's only the second run of his life and he's come from having a tour around in a maiden hurdle at Navan to racing so it was a big step up. If he had gone to Navan fancied and got a few slaps you'd say he learned something but he cruised there to win. It's great to have him and the right man has him as he won't be for sale. He could be a very good horse. He's a big raw sort of a horse and I'll leave plans to Frank and JP. They have loads of ammunition and I'm sure they won't be rushing him.

He reminds me of Rince Ri. He won a maiden hurdle here at this meeting like that - he bolted in. If he turns out as good as him I'd be delighted. It's a pleasant surprise and he's a nice horse. I actually rode the great grand-dam Hourly Rate. He done it nicely. I thought he was a nice horse and he'd run well but I didn't think he was forward enough to beat the fancied horses. He jumped well and travelled well. It looked a hot race but he made small work of them anyway. I'll talk to Frank and JP now and see what they want to do. He'll probably go for a winners of one somewhere. He's a lovely big chasing type and looks like a half decent horse. On his first run you wouldn't expect that. Katie said we should run him in a bumper but I wanted to go down the hurdling route.
