Effernock Fizz She's a four-year-old and she's improving the whole time,. She ran a lovely race up the Curragh last Friday in a €30,000 race. She was very unlucky as she was just beaten on the line by Dermot Weld's filly who has gone up to 93 since. That's her third win over hurdles. The last day we came here with her the ground just didn't suit her as it was a little bit tacky. Conditions suited her today. She's entered at Leopardstown in two weeks in a big premier handicap on the Flat. There are big entries for it but fingers crossed they don't all run. I think she deserves a crack at a big handicap. We were happy enough to come here after Friday, she came out of the race well and hopefully she'll come out of this one as well. These small field conditions race seem to suit her. We were riding her the wrong way before and she just wasn't happy in behind. When she's out in front she's at her happiest and she gallops away the finest and jumps the finest. We can't complain, she's not doing too much wrong at the moment. We're delighted with that and hopefully we go to Leopardstown now.

Effernock Fizz We fancied her coming into this. Adam sat on her the other day up the Old Vic and he said she had improved from her run at Tipperary. The person who plays the biggest part in this is my partner Danny, he rides her out every day. She is quirky enough and has had her problems but hopefully we have got to the bottom of them now and she can win a few more. The tactics have changed completely with her and we were lucky enough that she got an easy lead there again. There is a winners of two at Bellewstown on July 5th so we will probably aim for that. Hopefully the ground will stay nice for her and fingers crossed we might make it three in-a-row.
