Bigger And Better He was a nice horse for Richard Hannon in England in the past and he had niggly problems for Tony but had him right on the day. I had great luck with horses like Lyreen Wonder and Lyreen Legend in the past. it was the last throw of the dice today but he's a horse that always showed plenty. He was placed first time for us and it took us a long time to get him right. I always thought there was a day like today but it's taken a long time and the man that owns him has been very patient and I'm delighted for him. There was always potential there and at least we got it right today. He had a lot of issues but he was fair good today and he probably needed all the time he got.

One Last Look We're delighted with that. She's a lovely filly and she was very well bought by Gaelic Bloodstock,. The boys were working hard at the sales and that's where the name came from. It's very hard to buy pedigrees but she was the right model and they said they'd have to have one last look. They bought the look rather than the pedigree and it's worked out. Colin liked her and she was only ready to start out. We threw her in the winners race and sometimes they are easier to win than a big 20 runner maiden. He said that with her head low to the ground, and her action low to the ground, she wouldn't want it any quicker than that. He said it's beautiful ground but she wouldn't want it any quicker and we'll have to keep an eye on that. We'll take baby steps with her, look for a winner race or something like that and move on. We always liked her, Colin always liked her at home, but she will improve a lot from it.

Batts Rock it's great for Valerie and Noel (Moran), they sponsor the yard and have a good few horses with us so its nice for them to get a nice winner. he deserves to win, he has been knocking on the door a while. His jumping can be a bit hot and cold but he is a horse we might mix and match with the flat. He stays well on the flat and he could be well enough handicapped on the flat.
