Demi Plie Bryan gave her a great ride and she loves jumping. She's bred for different things but it is nice to get a winner. She had every chance the last day but you wouldn't know if she would have won. It was for horses rated 109 (today) and she's rated 108 so that's her kind of bracket. She likes jumping fences. We'll keep her going during the summer and find something similar.

Morpho Blue She picked up well, they went quick and it suited her. Seven furlongs is about her trip but she'll get a mile. She is a good mover and any old ground suits her. Hopefully we'll get her up to Stakes company and that is the plan for her.

Beckwith Place We only have 12 in training and they have all been running exceptionally well, so to get one on the board is good,. He was a weak horse last year and improved over the winter. He’d a good first run back at the Curragh and I’d have been disappointed if he didn’t do that this evening. He had a stone bruise and we had to take him out at Fairyhouse last week. He’s still a baby and only has eight runs under his belt. Hopefully he’ll improve from that again. This was Mr (Herb) Stanley’s horse and a new syndicate has come together to take him and another horse over. It’s great for them and is their first winner.

Double Martini He's a nice horse that Morna (winning owner Morna McDowall) sent to us in March,. He'll probably have no bother getting further but we thought five was nice place to start him today on a stiff track like this. It's great that he won today and we'll make a new plan as we go now. He's a nice horse, he's been working well and that ground was ideal for him.

Conron We had to get a handicap mark last year when he was rated 34 and we were struggling to get him into a race so we ran him in a conditions race before going back over hurdles. He likes an ease in the ground and while he isn't so much a summer horse, he likes nice ground and we'll have fun with him through the summer. He'll go to Punchestown now for a hurdle.

Still Standing He just loves that ground. He still won last year on ground he hated. He hasn’t really had that ground since he won here as a two-year-old. He’s won a Listed race now, and he’ll come back here for the Alleged Stakes. He’s already won over a mile and three and we’d be quite happy to step up to a mile and a half.
