Rock On Aidan it's a while since Declan rode a winner for me; we had a lot of success together so it's great. That's my first winner for Micky Smith (owner) and his half-sister also won here before Christmas.It's great for all involved. He's a gorgeous big horse, he was quite weak when we got him even though he's a five-year-old; he wouldn't have been out of place in the parade ring ahead of the Thyestes, he's that big. I think we'll have plenty of fun with him during the summer. We might try him once more here and see what the handicapper gives us. We'll probably jump a hurdle with him later in the summer as well. He has a lot of ability and he should progress more because he's big and strong. Fastnet Rocks need a little bit of time.
