Holly Flight I'd like to thank Pat and Mike Fennessy who sent us the mare for the year and she is the stable star for us. She'll run away for the summer and we'll have plenty fun with her and she was due that one as every day she goes she tries. She won her point-to-point on soft but she goes on anything and is an honest mare. We have a small yard and have mostly four-year-old point-to-pointers who we try to sell on. We have a handful of track horses and she could go back over hurdles at some stage soon.

Min It was unfortunate to lose Henry's horse early on. With the first and last fence out I'm not sure it told us much,. I was delighted with my fella, he ran up to form. I think he got a fright when Castlegrace Paddy fell and didn't jump the next few fences, especially the first down the back he just propped at it and stopped. He said if he keeps doing that he's probably out of the race. Ruby got him jumping then and got him into a rhythm down the back and it was only a matter of waiting until he got over the last and giving him the office to go, which he did. He has the pace for two miles and he can go out to two-and-a-half and maybe even an extra furlong or two as well. When he's on song, and he jumps well, he can gain ground in the air and keep his position. He has a lot of doors open for him. I'm very happy to win today and that's as far as I'm thinking. That's good, Rich is over for the race as well and we're very happy. Footpad and Min can both go out in trip or run over two miles. We should be able to keep them apart. I'm more concerned about getting some proper winter weather for some of these racetracks, and Cheltenham as well. We keep saying it'll come but it hasn't come. I'm more concerned about ground than keeping them apart. The Red Mills is an option (for Footpad). A lot of people are looking at the Red Mills, Presenting Percy included so that could be a real good race, it could be the race of the season.
