Klassy Kay the form of her third at Clonmel the last day has worked out well. Going up in trip is suiting her as well and she’ll have to go up a bit in grade now. I think as we go into the spring, drier ground will suit her and she might be able to win a nice handicap at one of the spring Festivals.

Presenting Point I'm delighted to get that. He had a good run the last day and the step-up in trip today probably helped him. Phillip gave him a nice positive ride from the front and it happened nicely for him. Phillip kind of made up his own mind down at the start. No one wanted to go on, so he went on. I'd say he would have been happier with a lead. There is a race at Thurles before Christmas that he could go for, it's over three miles. He could go to Limerick over Christmas either or come back here maybe on New Year's Day.

Chavi Artist He was threatening to win one on his last few runs. Discordantly got away on him in Galway and he would have been a good bit closer only for that. He was first reserve in the Troytown last week but didn’t get in,.

Conquredalofeurope He is a lovely big horse who ran in two point-to-points last year and was big and backward. I told Darragh to pop in behind the leaders and keep filling him and ride him into the bridle. I fitted him with cheek-pieces today because he can be lazy at home and I thought fitness would catch him out today on his first run of the season. Darragh said to me that going to the last he thought he was always going to get there - I wasn't as confident! . Chasing is his game, he is a grand jumper and a genuine horse who has improved from last year. He wouldn't light you up at home and just does what he has to do but he is a nice one to have and it's great for Brian (Acheson, owner) and the team.

Champagne Gold He is a lovely horse. Dylan gave him a super ride and he jumped well. We couldn't have asked him to do it any better really. I'd say he'll go for a novice next, we'll see. He is a real chaser in the making and I'm delighted with today. I'd say we could look at going further with him in time. We'll speak to the Maloney's and see what they think and we'll make a decision from there.

Mare Quimby I think we’ll try another bumper with her if the owners agree. She’s bred by Ken Parkhill and his son has the syndicate. The Listed mares’ bumper in Navan could be a likely target for her. She’s been working well and was showing us plenty in the spring. You would have to like the way she won that as she was awful green.

Dark Spark He's a nice horse and he has a great pedigree. He'll only come on from it as he's still a baby. We think he's nice and he's been showing us the right signs at home. I'd imagine we'll keep to bumpers, he won't go jumping hurdles at this time of year.

You Raised Me Up We were hoping he'd win one of those. He had some nice form from last year. We brought him to Cheltenham but the ground was too soft for him. We decided we'd keep him for Punchestown and then we had no Punchestown. He's a nice horse going forward and he'd be a better horse with less on his back in a good handicap somewhere. He had a lovely run in Leopardstown when he was third in his first handicap and hopefully there will be a nice race in him somewhere. I'm hoping that the maiden win shouldn't adjust his mark too much.

Blackjack Boy he is a nice horse and I'm delighted for Mark McDonogh (jockey) who claimed 4lbs as he hadn't ridden a winner. His father is away and I'm delighted for him and the whole family; Mark is a lovely young fellow and is a very nice rider. Hopefully he is a horse who keeps improving and he loves a bit of nice ground being by Presenting. Hopefully it is onwards and upwards.
