Franklyn It wasn’t the plan to make it. I was hoping to get a bit of cover but he bounced out and Chris said he loved it and handled the soft as well. The last day he was too fresh and keen and didn’t get home. He is a keen horse but today he settled great. They went very steady the last day and it was a bit too far. The lads at home have done a great job as he is a bit kinky.

Franklyn I'm very happy to win with him before the handicapper got to him. He got 11lb after Killarney so I had to come here today. I was very much afraid of the ground, that's as quick as he wants it, and afraid of the trip too. This was the only option I had. I had him in on Monday but it was a lot to ask to go to Killarney from the Curragh and then travel him to Ballinrobe as well. We'll give him a couple of weeks in the field now and find something in a month or six weeks. He's only three and is still maturing, he's a grand horse.
