My Good Brother It's great to see the old horse coming back. He's had issues and it's hard to keep everything right with him. We let him off for a break a couple of months and the aim was to get him back for Laytown. I said to Andy 'do the best you can to get into the frame today' otherwise we might not have got into Laytown with balloting. He's a 48 horse today but he was 102 at his best. It's good to see him back to a bit of form as he's been a great old servant. He runs well on the beach and has been a little bit unlucky the last twice there. He jumped the water last year and the year before probably got there a little bit soon and pulled himself up a bit. Hopefully he'll go close there now.

Ahlan Bil Zain I thought he ran well in a Premier Handicap at the Curragh the last day and he’s slowly coming down the handicap. He’s probably not as good on grass as the all-weather but the race cut up nicely. He did it well but when you get four non-runners and a small field for good prize-money then you know you’re luck is in. He’ll go to the Curragh on Derby weekend for a seven-furlong handicap.
