Bigger And Better He is a lovely big smashing horse but unfortunately he had a lot of little issues and little problems and hiccups and they took a long time to get right and he had a great patient owner,. He got a fall at Christmas and it put us back a long time but touch wood he is there and doing well now. We'll see how he is tomorrow and he's entered up next week so we'll see. He'll jump a hurdle later on.

Bigger And Better I'm delighted for the horse and the owner. He's a great man and he had the patience to stick with him,. We had a lot of issues, and a lot of bad luck with him, but touch wood he's well and firing now. Hopefully he can keep going for another while. The last day in Listowel I think he was a bit lethargic and idle, he dropped back to last and came home flying. Whereas today he carried him and it was the same in Gowran. It was just one of those days, maybe it was the track and maybe he was just a bit lethargic. I'd say they were two alright ones though.

Bigger And Better He was a nice horse for Richard Hannon in England in the past and he had niggly problems for Tony but had him right on the day. I had great luck with horses like Lyreen Wonder and Lyreen Legend in the past. it was the last throw of the dice today but he's a horse that always showed plenty. He was placed first time for us and it took us a long time to get him right. I always thought there was a day like today but it's taken a long time and the man that owns him has been very patient and I'm delighted for him. There was always potential there and at least we got it right today. He had a lot of issues but he was fair good today and he probably needed all the time he got.
