After race at Naas Sun, 21st Oct, 2018 (1st)
He's a lovely horse. When we got him we kind of ran him straight off the lorry in the Ladies' Derby as we were just trying to figure him out. Luke McAteer rode him the last day in Navan and said he was a nailed on certainty the next day over a mile-and-two. So credit to Luke, he called it well. Stephen gave him a peach today and he looked like he had plenty in hand. He'll be lovely horse next year for staying handicaps. He's not the type of horse we've been buying before, he's the dearest horse we bought in July, and we're just looking to have a decent handicapper over a longer distance. He'll tip away in Dundalk, he goes well on the surface up there, and I think the extended mile-and-two will be ideal for him there this winter. We'll crack on then next summer and hopefully go for a premier handicap at some stage.
