Whatsyourstatus I've got him beaten ten times over. He runs a bit gassy and keen and we always thought he wanted two miles or two mile two. He actually wants three miles. I even thought that today might be a bit too short for him. With the race being for horses who hadn't won over hurdles I said I'd take a chance. Ricky actually rode him during the week for me up the Old Vic. He said; 'I do not know how this horse hasn't won a race!'. If he comes out of this well he could go for the three mile handicap hurdle at Listowel next Friday. He would be tailor made for it. It's an amateur riders hurdle and we'd try to get Derek O'Connor or Ben Harvey to ride. He had eleven grand won before today and he only cost E1,500 at an August sale. I also have his sister and I think she is quite good. Her name is Fanoir, she is better than him and goes to Listowel for a mares bumper next. Conor rode him the last day and he is big part of the team. It's unfortunate for him. Ricky is a good replacement and I'm delighted for him to lose his claim. There is a few local lads in Clarecastle that will be delighted too and we might have a few pints on Monday to celebrate.

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.
