Manqoosh He's a lovely big horse and he's one of the biggest three-year-olds we have. I thought he'd run a very nice race. He's a big horse and we'll take our time with him during the year. He'd love that ground, just on the slow side of good is perfect for him. We'll see how the summer goes. He's 16-2 and over 500 kilos so he's a horse that we'll take our time with during the year. I see him as a lovely horse for the second part of the year. The plan was to ride him exactly as he rode him. I'd say he'll get a mile-and-a-quarter with the way he was getting to the line there nicely. He'll always want a nice ease in the ground. When he fills into that big frame of his I'd say he'll be a lovely horse in the autumn.

Mokhalad That was impressive. The run the last day was very good, considering it's a very quick five in Tipperary,. He came out of it grand so we said we'd let him take his chance. Shane was saying that he appreciates that little give in the ground. We might just give him a little break now, a couple of weeks off, and have a look at what is coming up later in the summer. Six is his trip, he does get seven so we have options, but he just needs a little bit of give in the ground and good to yielding is ideal. We'll wait and see what the weathers does and pick something out again. We'd hope to get to a premier handicap at some stages along the line. If he could do that at the Curragh in one of the big handicaps we'd be laughing.

Mokhalad he ran a blinder in Navan the last day and we were thinking of going back to Navan but this race came up and it looked an ideal opportunity. Donagh gave him an absolute peach. He didn’t travel as well as he did the last day, and the ground was probably a little bit livelier today. He was third in Galway last year and we are going to try and get back there this year.
