Drumconnor Lad We’re moving over to Malton in Yorkshire and some of the horses have gone over already. I’ve been reducing the numbers and will bring just six horses in total over with me but they are six that I think can all win.

Enduring Love The lads in the weigh room have a lot to answer for! We couldn't get that horse around. He ran very well in his handicap chase and he wants winter ground. Last year he had two runs, he unseated at the first in Limerick at Christmas when I fancied the life out of him. We went to Wexford on ground that was too good and he slipped on the flat, when running really well. He had no luck the last year but we've minded him because he wants soft ground. So we've waited a year-and-a-half with him. He's a relatively young horse and hopefully he can go on from there. Joanna rode for me in this last year and we were third with Rightback Atya, the horse that was second earlier today. She did well after he made a mistake. Joanna rides well over a fence and has loads of experience. In the ladies' race it's very hard to get a rider so she's my retained one, an unpaid retainer!. I'm delighted for John (Leckey). We had a winner for him at Naas on Saturday and another winner today so it's great. Hopefully this horse might come back here next week.
