Pure Nature It's capped off a great night for us,. She had a very good run the last day in Cork, when she finished second to Noel Meade's horse. I was speaking to Noel after and he thought his was a nice horse. I knew she'd improve and like this surface. She's in again on Thursday and I'd say we're going to have to run her as I'd say the handicapper isn't going to be too kind to her. I think potentially she could make a very nice juvenile hurdler. She's a nice filly and is improving all the time, I like this filly.

Centroid He is a half-brother to Enable and obviously isn't up to her class but it was nice to get another win with him. It all happened a bit too soon but he had to take the run (through on the inside) when he got it and he has held on well at the line. It's Gavin Ryan’s first winner for us.

Taramansour revealed Hayes. The blinkers helped as well; I hadn't ridden him since before he ever ran last year and I thought he was a grand horse and he has more pace than I gave him credit for. The blinkers sharpened him as he's not un-genuine and is a grand straightforward horse. Options are open for him and I think he could come back two furlongs in trip if you wanted to. It's nice to ride a winner in these colours again, the previous time was last year.

Tandem He ran a cracking race in Cork last Sunday and when the handicapper put him up a couple of pounds we said we might as well come here. He's probably the oldest horse running here today but he's an amazing horse and has a wonderful owner Mr Olivero from Italy who has had horses with me for years. The other reason I ran him is that he loves Leopardstown and won the Nasrullah Premier Handicap here twice. Six years ago he ran in Dubai and he's just a lovely horse to have. We retired him once but he's an example of a horse that loves being a racehorse. He loves life, he loves training in the morning and he loves racing. He's highly competitive at home so if we have something that can beat him you know they're good. He's rated 89 and is a hard horse to place so we'll have to see where we go.
