Tune The Chello she is real honest and genuine and stays really well but isn't slow either. I rode her on her first hurdles run and I didn't think she was that slow but she stays well. We went a nice even gallop and she quickened up well in the straight. She handles soft ground so every bit of rain helped and she has plenty options now.

Aprils Joy It's brilliant for the owners (Mick & Molly Syndicate) as they only bought her last week and she's after winning twice,. I might give her a chance now and we might go to Galway with her. She will have a good few choices there. I don't know exactly what she is going to go for but we'll target Galway.

Aprils Joy She was entitled to win that off her mark so in theory the handicapper shouldn't do anything to her,. They are new owners so to start off on a winner is nice. She's handicapped on the Flat as well so she might go for a staying handicap somewhere.

On The Sod He's kind of a very underestimated horse. He's shuffly and not a great mover and a very plain, workmanlike horse,. When the ground gets good, and it is just borderline for him now, I'd have to stop with him and that would be it. You couldn't run him on good ground. That's four from four now. He's just a tremendously strong horse - he just gallops and gallops. That hill is made for him. He actually would be far better going left-handed where he won at Kirkistown (point-to-point) the first day. I decided I would run him at Armagh (Farmaclaffley point-to-point) to see if we could come here. When he handled Armagh, I thought we might get away with running here. Next year there is one winner and two winner hunter chases but that is a long way away at this time.
