Heaven Help Us I'm over the moon, absolutely thrilled. It was a very good race as the two other mares in it were black-type mares as well. David said she jumped great in company. Obviously the race in Sligo brought her forward. It's just magic. I've one horse, that's her, and where she's been bringing us is just incredible. We ended up in the Grade 1 last year by accident. I was looking for something to do, just entered her in it and hey presto she finished second!. We had a great time and her run in the Supreme at Cheltenham was good. She met a lot of trouble but ran well. She's a wonderful mare and she's very easy to do. I've given most of my life to the dogs and this is a great release. I'm still busy with the dogs but not at the level we used to be as I haven't pushed it as much as we used to. I said to John Turner there that we'll have great sport now. We can enter her into all the big fancy races now that she's won her maiden chase. We got such a buzz last year and John lets me do that kind of thing. When you line up in those good races your knees are knocking and it's wonderful. She's just amazing and I think she can improve again.

I'm Not Alone That's brilliant, I'm delighted. She is at a level and that was her level today. Jody was absolutely amazing on her in fairness. He gave her every chance, he crept and did everything we wanted. She is a home-bred of Noreen McManus. Herself and Don't Let Go (a dual winner for O'Dwyer) are sisters so they've both won now at least. We'll stick to that sort of level and we'll see if she can pick up another one. The horses are running well and we've had three seconds this week. They are healthy and well and are running well and it's just a matter of getting a bit of luck.

Le Hachette Danny (Mullins) wouldn’t let me claim off her and she’s a right one to go and carry twelve stone like that. Nobody ever gave a horse of mine a better ride than Danny did on this one at Tramore.

West Cork Wildway He won a four year old point to point and ideally he needs a longer trip than today (2m1f) but it is great to win. I'm delighted for the 13 member syndicate, who are from West Cork. Tom O’Flynn, representing

Le Hachette I lost my mare (Mystery Stowaway) in the first, she was a superstar, I'd say she was a black-type mare. I shouldn't have ran her over fences and I'm sick now,. It's great to see this one win. She is a nice little mare but she is what she is. Danny gave her a serious ride. He is very much part of what I do. He is a great friend as well as a great jockey.

Allora Yeats She has got a bit of toe, so I was just hopeful to get a bit of luck in-running in the big field. When I asked her to quicken up she did it really well. It was just a matter of getting to the line on time. She's in great form and she is on the up. I think when she step up in grade and they go that stride quicker it might suit her again. She'll go on any ground. She's a good, tough mare. I was panicking a bit coming up the straight as she got stuck in behind a bit of traffic but he gave her a super ride. She’s a mare that likes to be ridden cold and come with one run. After Bellewstown we thought that she would appreciate a stiffer track. She’s proved us right and we’re delighted with her. It’s unlikely that she will get in but I would like to run her in the Ladies' Derby next Saturday. We’ll find something else for her here or at Leopardstown, a nice galloping track somewhere. She’s really turned a corner and will go back hurdling and maybe chasing. She just seems to stay and stay. She’s a big mare and maybe when she was a bit weak when she was younger.

Allora Yeats She's been knocking on the door on her last couple of runs,. We decided to switch from blinkers to the visors just so she could see a little bit more as she just lacks a bit of confidence. Now that she has her head in front I think there are definitely a couple of races in her. There is a mile-and-a-half up the Curragh next Friday for her so if she pulls out of this race we'll keep her going while she is in good form. We'll probably go back hurdling with her at some stage and might even go for a beginners chase towards the end of the year with her. She's not ground dependent so we'll have a bit of fun with her all year round with a bit of luck. Hopefully she stays sound now, that's the main thing.
