Tucanae We took a chance and went for this instead of the mares race which looked good. Her 7lb allowance cancelled out her 7lb penalty for winning a bumper and thankfully it’s worked out,. She had a mark of 115 and hopefully we can go for a handicap. We made a mistake running her over 2m6f in Punchestown as she didn’t get home. We dropped her right back and hopefully she’ll keep improving.

Wheres Maud Gone She has done everything right at home and was just ready to start. That's her first gallop on grass but we were expecting a good run and we fancied her well. She is a good filly. She was actually entered in a point to point last weekend but she was showing so much pace we said we'd come here. She'll be sold now.

Heaven Help Us I'm over the moon, absolutely thrilled. It was a very good race as the two other mares in it were black-type mares as well. David said she jumped great in company. Obviously the race in Sligo brought her forward. It's just magic. I've one horse, that's her, and where she's been bringing us is just incredible. We ended up in the Grade 1 last year by accident. I was looking for something to do, just entered her in it and hey presto she finished second!. We had a great time and her run in the Supreme at Cheltenham was good. She met a lot of trouble but ran well. She's a wonderful mare and she's very easy to do. I've given most of my life to the dogs and this is a great release. I'm still busy with the dogs but not at the level we used to be as I haven't pushed it as much as we used to. I said to John Turner there that we'll have great sport now. We can enter her into all the big fancy races now that she's won her maiden chase. We got such a buzz last year and John lets me do that kind of thing. When you line up in those good races your knees are knocking and it's wonderful. She's just amazing and I think she can improve again.

I'm Not Alone That's brilliant, I'm delighted. She is at a level and that was her level today. Jody was absolutely amazing on her in fairness. He gave her every chance, he crept and did everything we wanted. She is a home-bred of Noreen McManus. Herself and Don't Let Go (a dual winner for O'Dwyer) are sisters so they've both won now at least. We'll stick to that sort of level and we'll see if she can pick up another one. The horses are running well and we've had three seconds this week. They are healthy and well and are running well and it's just a matter of getting a bit of luck.

Le Hachette Danny (Mullins) wouldn’t let me claim off her and she’s a right one to go and carry twelve stone like that. Nobody ever gave a horse of mine a better ride than Danny did on this one at Tramore.

West Cork Wildway He won a four year old point to point and ideally he needs a longer trip than today (2m1f) but it is great to win. I'm delighted for the 13 member syndicate, who are from West Cork. Tom O’Flynn, representing

Le Hachette I lost my mare (Mystery Stowaway) in the first, she was a superstar, I'd say she was a black-type mare. I shouldn't have ran her over fences and I'm sick now,. It's great to see this one win. She is a nice little mare but she is what she is. Danny gave her a serious ride. He is very much part of what I do. He is a great friend as well as a great jockey.
