He is a lovely horse and he gave as good an exhibition of jumping around there as any horse has ever given. He jumped absolutely brilliantly and Kevin gave him a great ride. I'm very lucky to get the horse. John Gleeson (previous trainer) has done an awful lot of schooling with him and has made this horse in fairness. I'm just lucky enough to have got him at this time. With the age he is now he is improving away and he'll have no problem getting three miles. He might go for the Munster National and could turn out on Saturday here too. It's not beyond the bounds of possibility. I also wouldn't mind winning another (fourth) Kerry National and he might just be the horse to do it next year.

He's a fine horse and I just took my time with him and he needed all of it. He's a noble looking horse and I'd like to run him in the Ladies Cup at Punchestown next - I've never seen a horse to jump banks like him!. Patsy Davern is involved in the Don't Go There Syndicate and I'm delighted for him as he has had horses with me for years.
