Quizical I'm delighted with that. I'd say it's the first time he's met his ground this year, although we've had soft it's been tacky. He just loves that loose ground and he'll gallop through it. Shane said he jumped, really travelled then he took a pull and settled in behind. He had trouble pulling him up. It's great for the horse that he had a fully fledged one beside his name now. I don't know if there is anything more for him now. He's a brilliant horse to have around for those big handicaps but he just needs a bit of give. The Lincoln was his aim at the beginning of this year but I just got held up with a foot. I had a really troubled spring and summer with him. When he started to come right then it dried up. He's been very busy in the last few weeks after the rain came but I think that's him now. He's a great servant and great to have in the yard.

Njord He’s just a gorgeous, genuine horse and I thought he’d like the track. He did it very well. He’s in the Horses In Training Sale, and he’ll do a lovely job for somebody if John (Lavery, owner) lets me send him.

Cyrus Dallin he’s done it really nicely, and has been in great form his last couple of runs. He loves that ground. We thought the draw would be a big problem but he has plenty of early speed and we got a good position. He put the race to bed really nicely. I’m very fortunate to be with Denis; he gave me my first winner seven years ago, and to come back and ride a winner for him at Galway, at the Curragh and at Listowel is brilliant. We work so hard in that yard and it’s nice to get the winners on these days. The horses are in flying form and that’s due to the hard work of all the lads at home. I’m lucky I get to ride them in races.
