Hurricane Cliff I was a bit disappointed with him in Leopardstown at Christmas so we said we’d sit with him and wait a bit longer. He ran well at Punchestown and it’s lovely to see him go and do it here. He’s learning all the time and is a lovely big scopey horse. He should be good over a fence in time. We’ll aim for the Festivals here later on in the spring. I’m delighted to get that for Angus Potterton and the Molesworth Syndicate.

Blackstone Cliff He’s got a bit of class and just needs to drop the bridle. When he does that he finishes. He’s in the online Sale at Goffs on Monday. Obviously I’d love to keep him but we’ll see what happens there. He could make a nice hurdler as he’s big enough. Fingers crossed he makes a nice price for the owner or I get to keep him!. Emmet said he might be better in a better race as he has the class to travel. He’s still going the right way and is a nice horse.

Hannon This is mostly down to his owner Derek as he mentioned this race to me a good while ago. I have to give him the credit for this. There aren't too many of those two mile races and he looks like he wants every yard of it so I don't know where we'll go now.

Blackstone Cliff He's another tricky horse, he can be keen and if he gets a run on you at all he wastes his own energy. Shane gave him a lovely ride and got him switched off. He said he still had a go at him in the early part of the race but he got switched off and got on to the backs of the leaders when they slowed it down. He won well and is a nice horse. He'll probably jump hurdles too and is one to look forward to. We'll get him out again here and hopefully the handicapper isn't too hard on us. He has a turn of foot over that trip but if he doesn't settle he hasn't got it.
