Dubai Rainbow The owner is a better judge than me. He flew over from Trinidad once last year and she won and he flew over today and she won so he obviously knows more than the trainer,. I thought it was a pretty competitive handicap and I was particularly afraid of Hidden Spark (finished fourth). It's nice to win, he's a lovely man and he's had horses with me for a long time. He was introduced to me by Mick Molloy and the Kerr family. The Kerrs were very famous trainers in Clonee and trained a lot of top sprinters and milers back in the day. When they retired I got to train for him. He's been very good, a lovely man. He's ninety odd and he's in great nick. You won't see me at 92 unless you get a ouija board!

Precise Express he did it well, bounced very smart from a badish draw and I was able to get a nice position all the way. He travelled really well, I was there plenty soon enough and could have done with a lead a bit longer, but I had no choice as he was going too easy. I'd say he was just having a look going to the line but he did it well. I was third on him in Cork over seven and he was third over six in Leopardstown. On his last two runs there were excuses for him. The ground went soft for him in Tipperary and he wouldn't have liked it. He likes that ground, well watered nice ground. He's won now and hopefully he can go on a win a handicap.

Kattani He ran very well in Cork but just didn’t get home (over ten furlongs) and then he laboured on soft ground at Tipperary. This is his ground, and he worked very well the other morning which gave me the confidence to take on the favourite. The plan was for Oisin to take his time, get him to switch off and ride him to come home. A mile is his trip.
