Bay Ambition She ran a blinder the first day in Roscommon and it looked an obvious race there today with the step up in trip. It's grand, she was good and stamina came into play. The majority of the syndicate are from Galway.

Ozzie's Way That was mighty on his first start over fences,. All the family are chasers so hopefully he'll improve a bit for fences. Them races are great (for horses rated 116 or less over hurdles). He's a 112 hurdler I think. I was going to pull him out this morning because of the ground, to go to Bellewstown for a handicap hurdle on good ground. Having thought about it though if he were to win another hurdle he couldn't run in today's race. I just said now was the time to go for a chase when he was down there at 112, and we'll see what the handicapper does now. He could go for one of those rated novices. Andrew gave him a good education - he'll learn a lot from today. It's great for Tim (Conroy, owner/breeder). He hasn't been racing all summer - his wife hasn't been well. He's at home doing all the jobs on his own. Tim has been a loyal patron since I started training. This fella's dam (Stashdeaway) was very good for Michael O'Brien. She was a black-type mare from the family of Glebe Lad who won a National.

Westland Row We were lucky and that (luck) is the name of the game. We had a horse (Barra) fall at the final fence at Kilbeggan when he was going to win the Midlands National so it goes around. We got handed a race today but we'll take them any way we get them. We got there a bit soon as the plan was to get there going to the last but what could we do! . Six weeks ago if you told me he'd win three in a row I'd have laughed at you but he is after winning a few nice pots now so it's great. He's probably better over hurdles as he jumps better and we'll mix and match with him now in whatever he qualifies for.

Westland Row Denis gave him a great ride. He put him to sleep and he didn't even know he was at the races,. It was nice for Caren (Walsh), John (Doyle) and Aidan and Kevin O'Ryan, everyone has a share in him. We'll enjoy today now and see what happens after that.

Ozzie's Way I would have settled for a dead heat to be honest! It's a long run down from the third last,. To be honest he was a different horse today. It's a pity Tim (Conroy) couldn't be here. He bred him and he is a great racegoer. It is a pity he couldn't travel today. We had a frustrating enough evening as a few didn't run up to scratch so it is good to get a winner. We'll possibly look for a beginners' chase for him, one of those rated beginners'. He jumps well and is from a very good family.

Cash Me Outside It's nice to get back with a winner after what happened the mare in the first. She would have been a nice mare when we'd eventually get her to settle, but that's racing,. This mare wants a half mile further and she was leaning the whole way with Sean. She was tough after the last, I thought she was going to be collared because the second horse jumped it well as well. She toughed it out well and handled the ground. I said to Sean not to take her out of her comfort zone. He could never take her back and her jumping kept her in it. She'll more than likely go for a handicap now but we'll see.
