Acari We're delighted with that,. We ran him in Tipperary on yielding ground but it was my fault that day as we got the tactics wrong and he got there too soon. We ran in Gowran, where he had won the year before on good ground, and Chris (Hayes) came in and said there was something wrong as he just wasn't travelling and didn't go a yard. I took him home, brought him to Leopardstown on good to firm ground and Chris said he wasn't letting himself down. I took him home, got him checked over and there was nothing wrong with him. I rang his owner and just said he might need yielding to soft ground so we'll just have to bide our time and wait. Thankfully it worked out and he is where he is today. As long as it keeps raining we'll be happy!
