Elimay Elimay is coming on all the whole time,. Mark said she missed the ditch and I thought she hit a flat spot. She did it the hard way then having to come around (wide). I thought Cut The Mustard ran a great race; she is improving and for her second run over fences I was very pleased with her. I'm pleased with the two of them. One, if not the two of them, could go for the Dawn Run Novice Chase at Limerick in March. I don't have anything else obvious for that race.

Batcio There might be horses in behind him that might never win a race but he jumped well, travelled well and won like a odds-on shot in a very weak race,. There were a lot horses not fancied, some weren't great, unless he fell himself. Ian gave him a lovely ride and rode him with loads of confidence. Ian has his own place now and I meet him on the Curragh if I'm stuck and he is a lovely fella. He rode Any Second Now when he won his first race and he is a most obliging fella. This is basically Aubrey (McMahon's) horse but he is out of action with a knee injury and he hasn't ridden over fences, but if he goes back over hurdles Aubrey will ride him and could ride him over fences at some stage. He'll go to Limerick for a handicap chase next.
