Tasalka She had the rating to win, had been working nicely and loved the little ease in the ground. We'll see if we can get a bit of black-type with her, that's the target. I'm very pleased. I'd say that was a good maiden. With fillies at this time of year you are trying to start off and get winning brackets with them first and then see if you can progress. She ran some very good races last year and that's why she is a highly rated filly. I'd be very hopeful of getting black-type with her.

Carrytheone He’s improving all the time. He’s a big horse and is mentally a bit immature. Shane has done a good job on him. We’ve the hood on him as he’s a bit keen at home, a bit buzzy, but he’s starting to relax into it now. I think whatever he does this year, he’ll be even better next year. The syndicate is from Melbourne and I met them when I was over in Australia. Lope de Vega was doing well over there, so I had this fella to sell to them. It’s their first winner in Ireland and I know they were all looking at the race, so I’m thrilled for them.

Timemakesitfine We were doing the pre-training for Denis and once COVID happened Denis had 12 ready to go and five ended up in our place nearly ready to go. It was more through necessity than want that they are with me.

Lucky Vega You would have to be happy with him. He never came off the bridle at home and Shane said he was very green throughout the race. He was on the grass once or twice at home but that was it and they were only steady bits,.
