Swiss Army Officer Ben is with me full-time and is a Dingle man but is no relation to Jack or Paddy (Kennedy, jockeys). He came to me wanting to ride over jumps but he has ended up riding on the flat and it's a bonus for him as he is a big lad and he works very hard. He rides well. He (Swiss Army Officer) is a big horse and we thought we'd be going down the bumper route but he just doesn't stay. He has been placed and I didn't think he'd ever get there as he has been unlucky. He was due to go Leopardstown at the end of the week but doesn't take his racing too well and I might leave him off for the year now.
