Doctor Duffy The horse deserved that as he's fierce consistent,. The galloping track here suited him. The horse doesn't know how to run a bad race. He might go to the first meeting in Cheltenham in October. There is a novice there over two-mile-six. If he doesn't go there he could go to the November meeting, he might as well go before the real good ones come out!. He got his jumping together, it took three or four runs for that to come. He had to keep him off the rail because he's liable to duck out as well. That's why he rode him down the middle between horses. He is what he is, 134, and he's a fierce consistent horse.

Greenandwhitearmy he's a quirky sort but we were hoping he would get in the money. I thought the other horse (runner-up Mr Moondance) had got away from him but he battled well up the hill. He's actually better over 2m5f and we'll keep him going and he could come back here for the next meeting.

Canadian Steel We'll have to go to Tramore on Thursday before the handicapper gets a hold of us now!. He's improving all the time and he is going well. I still think he is a better horse over fences than over hurdles - he's a savage jumper over fences and travels that well over fences. I'll be in Spain on Thursday but I'll be able to watch it!. It was the first time ever I had a double - I had a double one day with a point-to-point winner and a track winner but I never had a track double.

Canadian Steel They went too slow yesterday (in Sligo) and they didn't quicken. He's entered for Killarney later on in the week, but we'll see what he is like in a couple of days. He might run but I'd say it is a bigger chance he won't. Looking at it this morning you had to go for today's race - if he was a five-year-old horse you wouldn't do that but sure he is a 10-year-old horse. He came out of yesterday 100 per cent and we scoped him yesterday evening to make sure he was 100 per cent. He could have finished third today as handy as winning. Conor (Orr) is a very good jockey - I gave him a lot of rides and he had no luck for me for a long time but I stuck by him.
