Benefit North That was a great ride from Denis (O'Regan) and he's a great man to have on board,. He's a very, very pacey horse. He travels so easy and we knew he would travel at the top of the hill. He got a couple of lengths and was able to freewheel down the hill. I was expecting a good run. Bryan Cooper rode him in Leopardstown the last day and said he was only in second gear when he fell at the second last. The form has since been franked, so we thought we were going to be bang there today. There was a bit of money for him, but we have nothing to spend it on!

Emily Moon Ever since she first jumped a fence at home she has been rapid over them and Robert thinks she will be nice when the ground dries up more and we go 2m4f with her. We'll have a chat and see where we go with her but she hasn't got black-type yet so that will definitely be on the agenda.

Treacysenniscorthy There's plenty of us have come to follow him today so it's a great day. To even have a runner up here at a meeting like this, for a small stable, is phenomenal. To come here with a chance and then win is what you dream of. He's a chaser, that is what he is. He won a novice chase and we decided to go back over hurdles and try and win a hurdle with him. He just kept improving and that's why we've kept him over hurdles. We'll have a look at Cheltenham but the handicapper will have his say now so we'll have to see if he puts him up too much.

Best Behavior He pulled out the stops there. It was a funny race as he made a few mistakes and Barry wasn’t that hard on him until he began to realise he might have a chance in the straight. The ones in front went quick enough and were tiring and he had a bit more toe to keep going. Hopefully there is a big handicap in him some day.

Highest Benefit He stayed on great. He made a bit of a mistake at the second last but it woke him up. It was a bit too heavy for him here the last day and he liked that ground. We'll maybe get another one of these three-mile races somewhere.
