Rips Dream He is a lovely horse and we always thought on the Flat his bravery wasn't the best, but we think hurdles will toughen him up. He's not finished yet on the flat but the hurdles will put a bit of bravery into him. We were hoping for the best today as he had been jumping well at home and he is a lovely big horse. It is sad his owner Bill Foley passed away earlier in the year; he was an absolute gentleman and he would have been thrilled. His niece Annette O'Connor and nephew are carrying on with the horse now so it's great.

Galeola The ground really worried me because we thought she was better on soft but Robbie said she strode out to her chin. He said when he came in that there was no doubt because he was taking a pull the whole way and he said the hardest job was holding her. I threw her into the Give Thanks Stakes at Cork on Sunday. I think she's at that level. Being a filly it's worth trying. I'll see how she comes out of this tomorrow but I think I would like to go and try and get a bit of black-type.
