he made hard work of it; even though he won well in Galway he still had a race so we'll take our time now and we'll probably park him up until Listowel. Donagh gave him a lovely ride, he didn't panic when he was under pressure down the bottom. He needed every yard of the trip and wouldn't have won over two miles here today. He's a chaser in the making.

I've really enjoyed it and it's hard to let go. I really enjoyed that,. I have more things going on nowadays. It's gone so busy at home and there are days when I can't think what's going on as there is so much happening. I wouldn't even know I'm riding sometimes. It's going so well. The only reason I could do this so long is because I've got such a great team at home. I couldn't have stayed riding for so long if I hadn't had that back-up behind me. My parents have been a massive help. I talked to them once or twice about doing this and they said keep doing it if you enjoy it. I do enjoy it but I have bigger commitments nowadays and there are plenty of good lads riding there. I though he could win but you never know until everything goes right in the race. I like Galway and always did. I always trained everything for Galway. I thought if ever there was time to go and leave the job, it was here at my favourite track. I had a good career, I wouldn't say outstanding but I rode lots of winners and this was probably my Cheltenham. I'm happy to concentrate on the training job now. We have a lot of good Flat horses. Mick Halford will be happy as he's been telling me for years 'give up that riding craic'. Ted's been telling me and Ruby hinted at it once or twice. It was my decision and I'm looking forward to the future now.
