Charlie Stout That's brilliant. He was unlucky at Christmas and was unlucky with Thurles being called off too,. We stuck him in this beforehand thinking if he won in Thurles or Leopardstown he'd be in the handicap. When he got carried out in Leopardstown we said we'd take a chance. I'm just delighted for the horse to have come back because he was lost there for a while but we figured out what was wrong with him and got him right. I'm delighted for the lads that own him. He has a couple of new owners in him as well so I'm delighted for them. He goes on any ground but I think he's at a stage now where nicer ground suits him better. He spent many runs running on real heavy ground so I'd say at this stage he doesn't mind a bit of nicer ground. We might go to Leopardstown, he'll have an entry anyway in something at the big meeting. This is by far my biggest winner and it's brilliant. It's a great pot and it's great to have a horse like him. We don't have many of his calibre, even though he's only rated 123, he's a long way above what we have. It's great to be able to come here and be competitive and I'm delighted that our luck changed as well. He was due a turn.
