Wolf Prince It was a messy kind of a race but I suppose on form he should have been winning it,. For a messy race he got away with it. He jumped well on the whole, it wasn't ideally run and I think he'll be better in a better race with a proper gallop. He showed gears as well and it was a good enough performance. He has an entry in the Grade 1 at Leopardstown but I'd presume Henry's horse would go there and it would be very hard to beat him. There is also a 130 rated novice at Naas in February and he could potentially go there. He'll probably get an entry in the Triumph but is more likely to go to the Fred Winter. I don't see much point in going and taking on Henry's horse (Aspire Tower) in the Triumph. He's the best we have anyway but he has to get there too as well.

Clemencia He is certainly a Triumph Hurdle horse without any question or doubt, . I was heart-broken the first day in Down Royal and I thought for the first day at the races he didn't get a very sympathetic ride. I did expect him to win, I'm not going to tell that I didn't, but there was also a horse running away upsides him. I'm lucky it's coming up to Christmas and I'm off the hook with Jim (Bolger, owner)! He is like the trainer, big and backward and will take time and this is a nice horse and with a little bit of luck you'll hear plenty more about him. He has been schooling him since last January and the lads at home did a great job with him. He is talented and just needs to be lucky in his life. Jim likes going to Leopardstown at Christmas but I might keep him until the Dublin Racing Festival instead. It's odds-on now Santa will come.
