Munfallet it’s about time I got it right on him, and if it was any other trainer I would have lost the ride a long time ago!. My dad does a great job with them. He wouldn’t be as straight forward as Park Row (eight-time winner) and you have to cod him along. The last twice I didn’t want to take his enthusiasm off him but it just played out that he wasn’t getting home. It worked out well today. I got into a nice position and he travelled away well, picked up and has done it nicely. He’s a horse that was rated higher in his earlier days, so we knew he had the ability it was just trying to get it out of him. Hopefully he’ll get a bit of confidence from that and there might be another one in him.

Royal Admiral we had been running him over a 1m2f and 1m4f and I never thought he had the pace here to take on my two sprinters (over today's 7f) but it's a funny game that he would come and do it. He jumped out, made it and stayed going so I'm delighted. I thought the other horse was going to go by him two down but he stuck at it well. They are two great riders (O'Hare and Barry O'Neill on the runner-up) and they stuck at it brilliant.
