Cafe Con Leche We hacked around, we'd do more at home. He hasn't worked since he won at Clonmel and he loves being fresh,. I was happy to let Darragh (O'Keeffe, on Great Bear) go as slow as he wanted because he used to just about get two miles but he has got stronger now and is more effective in a finish than he used to be. It was a blessing in disguise that he didn't get into Cheltenham as I would have ran him and he had an easy race there so it's great that we're here and great that racing is on. He will be for flat for the summer; he is a big horse and I wouldn't want to run him on quick ground but down the line fences will be his job too.

Cafe Con Leche I followed the favourite and he stopped down the straight and I won't say I went by him at speed, but I got by him. It was a very ordinary race and he was probably rated to win and he is actually very ground-versatile and has good ground on the flat as well. He didn't feel in love with that ground but I don't think any horse would be. It is sapping, gruelling, sticky, deep and not nice for any horse. There was a lot of sloppy jumping but that's because they are finding it hard to get out of it. He's entered in the Fred Winter next week but I'd say we'll take our time with him.
