Bracka Lily Fair play to the stewards for letting us run (with Danny Mullins putting up 4lb overweight). They could have been very awkward and not let us run. All the owners are here and they didn't make too much of a fuss,. He rode her very well and is a very shrewd jockey. She's not overly big and I thought today we would put her in a higher class race and take the weight off her - it worked a treat. It will be something similar again, and if we get a bit of weight off her back she will be all the better for it. She was going well here the last day and she fell at the top of the hill.

Love The Melody The last day she was pulling. We said we'd let her bowl along today so she wouldn't pull. The minute she got in front she just settled herself and that was it. He got a few breathers into her and she did it well. It's great to have another winner (also on the mark with Travelwise at Naas on Wednesday). We will leave her freshen up a little bit. She wants a good cut in the ground like that, it's lovely ground. She is a very nice mare and has a future.

Payngo It was a good performance. Off her handicap mark we were hoping she might have put in a performance like that somewhere but her jumping just seemed to let her down. We wanted to come up here to Kilbeggan and we were looking at the handicap as well as the maiden today. The maiden cut up a little bit more and she's put in a nice performance. Hopefully she'll step up and it'll do her confidence the world of good.

Monstrosity Paul said he did it well, he wouldn't want the ground any quicker than it is but I thought that myself,. He's a big lump of a horse and he'll probably go and jump a fence, depending on the ground. We'll get over that first. I was a bit anxious about the ground but in fairness to them they did a good job. The time of year it is, it's difficult. He's a solid horse. He's big and strong and keeps galloping. Onwards and upwards.

Humm Baby She is a good money-spinner and she is after growing two inches over the summer; she is not small now,. I'm delighted having a winner as I thought I had forgotten how to do it! . I don't know where we go next but any time I wanted her she has won when fresh. I didn't enter her for Ballinrobe on Tuesday as you wouldn't pull her out quick.

Presenting Mahler When she gets her chance in front she is super. Kevin did a great job and got into a lovely rhythm jumping and she was just super. She's a lovely mare. She is owned by my dad's first cousin Paddy McKeon so it's a real family affair. Unfortunately dad can't be here today as he has been a little unwell for a couple of weeks. She has been in great form and is looking super so we were confident because she is pretty consistent. Tisamystery (who finished fourth) is obviously a very good horse, he has won some very good races. This is one of her best wins and we are delighted. She'll probably stay going for the summer.
