Shawaf I'm delighted with that. It was getting a bit frustrating but it wasn't for lack of honesty, he's a very genuine horse and just kept bumping into one and had a couple of bad draws,. He'll tip away here for the winter, back into handicaps and we'll look at anything from six to a mile. He showed a lot of speed there. I never thought he was a five furlong horse but we might toy with it over the winter. We have plenty of options and we'll have plenty of fun with this lad.

Longbourn We bought him off Eddie Harty and he had winter form (at Dundalk). His owner Amanda Torrens has had a rough time with a couple of horses getting injured in the winter time and we decided to try a flat horse for her, and it is great to get a winner. He is ground-dependent, needs good ground and we had him in last week, but the heavy rain at Limerick changed everything. He could keep going forward now. I thought giving the three-year-olds 6lbs might be a hard task especially in September, but he stuck to it very well. We'll stick to the flat and he could go back to Dundalk, but down the road he could also go jumping.
