In From The Cold he stuck at it well. He was a fraction slow away and was nearly in top gear the whole way. In the last furlong he was only getting going. He's still a bit green and I think he'll improve again off that. Well done to Mick for running him back like that before he got the 7lb (ratings hike). Hopefully he'll win again. He's a good honest horse and tries hard. He wants further.

Imposing Supreme I'm delighted for the horse as he deserved that. He has only run nine times and has finished second four times so I was hoping he would get his head in front and I'm delighted for Leonard (Kinsella) and Kevin (Haigney) who are my biggest supporters. We had no intention of coming to Galway until Gary (Carroll) got off him at Killarney and said Galway would suit him, so that was it. He is improving, is solid as a rock and has a fantastic temperament. He is big, is all there, and it is easy to train horses like him and I wish I had a stable full of horses like him. That's my first Galway festival winner as a trainer but I won the GPT as a jockey on Saving Bond for Noel Meade (in 1997).

Ally Cay I knew she wasn't useless but she disappointed the last day and I was scratching my head,. We tried the visor on her and it obviously woke her up. They went very hard and she was flat to the boards everywhere. She won well enough and I suppose the handicapper will probably give her a nice enough rise. She's still going to be in that low grade and we'll look for something similar again.

Trueba That will ease the pain of getting beat last week!. We've been giving out about all these draws as he was drawn 17 last week and 22 today. I thought he was going to struggle today from the draw. Niall said he was happy enough that last week he ran well in a similar sort of race and today we'd try and get him over a bit. Maybe we're reading too much into the draws here after the first couple of races today. Maybe it'll even itself out because there never was much of a bias here before on this track. Niall got him over and he said a stiff six or easy seven is his trip. Hopefully he can start improving now and creeping up the handicap a bit.
