Psyche you'd have to be very happy with that. He was shrewdly bought (for E58,000) by Patrick Cooper at the Goresbridge breeze-up sale and he's a real nice horse for next season. We actually trained his dam, Ode To Psyche, and he's a lovely horse going forward. The colts took a while to come to themselves. Maybe they were just a bit backward and will make good three-year-olds. That's probably him for the year and we'll bring him back in the spring.

Spanish Tenor It is great to get him back, . We thought he was gone a bit lazy in himself so we stuck blinkers on him for the first time. He had his ground, was a class above those in his heyday and Billy said he has a higher cruising speed than the rest of them. He's not in again but will be soon. He was going to be gelded last week but I said we'd give him one chance with blinkers. He more than likely will be gelded over the winter but he still has his ability and it is great to get a win with him.

Lady Olenna She deserved it, her form was there in the book. Everything in around her has won since. She's in a Group 3 at Cork (Give Thanks Stakes) in the middle of August. The owners are mad keen to give her a go at a bit of black-type. That's where she'll go next. I think she is a filly that is getting better with racing. She's a big raw filly and I think her best days are ahead of her.

Next Stop Broadway Sure he's as tough as nails. Con (Marnane) bought him cheap and he is a grand horse,. He might win another one, we might find something in Galway towards the end of the week. I think there is a race there for him on Saturday, so he might go for that. He's very genuine. He ran a few times last year in France and he probably just needed time to fill out as he is a big, strong horse. That trip seems to be ideal for him because even though he gallops he's not slow. He has a little bit of pace as well. He ran very well in Killarney - Shane's brother Nathan (Crosse) actually rode him and he thought that he didn't go hard enough on him in Killarney. This place probably suited him better too - a big, galloping track.
