Blackstone Cliff The owner James Wallace is a very nice man who has been patient with me making a mess of things! He was unlucky at Down Royal and then I stretched him stamina-wise at Leopardstown and the ground was very soft at Cork the last day, and he loves this ground. I was humming and hawing whether to run him as he didn't do a great piece of work during the week, but when you have Colin on your side it is a great help. He stays 1m2f, is big enough to jump hurdles and when we got him he was quite keen and he could possibly make a nice summer hurdler next year.

Red Gerry He was entitled to that and it has just taken him a while to learn to jump quicker. He’s been a bit slicker every time he’s run, and I suppose the trainer was wrong to run him over two and a half in Down Royal.

Royal Canford Billy jumped her out and set lovely fractions. It’s great for her owner/breeder Michael O’Donnell who didn’t have a winner for a while and has now had two in a week (Huddle Up at Cork last Tuesday).

Starlite Dancer he had a couple of good runs last year and it's good to see him get his head in front. He probably wasn't badly in. He ran well at Galway last year and could go for something similar again.
