Lustown Baba I’m thrilled for the syndicate. One of the syndicate owners (Laurence Sheedy) bred her and didn’t sell so all his friends got into her. They are from Lustown near Dunboyne so that’s how she got her name.

Lustown Baba She is a big mare and she isn't slow for an Alhebayeb. The mare has bred all winners, she is a good mare and the syndicate of lads from Dunboyne have (lease) her and one of the lads own her,. She is a lovely big mare and as a three year old we'll see the best of her. She qualifies for the Final in Naas, she loves that ground so we'll see if we keep her in for that Naas race. I told Nathan (Crosse, jockey) to mind her a bit the last day as the ground was a bit quick for her and she is still green. That track is wonderful out there.

Borelli I thought coming here today that we had a lot of horses with good chances. Andy rode this lad last time and said he was staying on nicely. We knew he’d get the mile well and that he’d like the cut in the ground,. He’s a horse that we thought a bit about and he’s lost his way a little bit. He’s probably a bit mentally immature and blinkers on today helped him concentrate. When he hit the front he was only getting going. For a horse by Alhebayeb he stays well.

In From The Cold he stuck at it well. He was a fraction slow away and was nearly in top gear the whole way. In the last furlong he was only getting going. He's still a bit green and I think he'll improve again off that. Well done to Mick for running him back like that before he got the 7lb (ratings hike). Hopefully he'll win again. He's a good honest horse and tries hard. He wants further.

Imposing Supreme I'm delighted for the horse as he deserved that. He has only run nine times and has finished second four times so I was hoping he would get his head in front and I'm delighted for Leonard (Kinsella) and Kevin (Haigney) who are my biggest supporters. We had no intention of coming to Galway until Gary (Carroll) got off him at Killarney and said Galway would suit him, so that was it. He is improving, is solid as a rock and has a fantastic temperament. He is big, is all there, and it is easy to train horses like him and I wish I had a stable full of horses like him. That's my first Galway festival winner as a trainer but I won the GPT as a jockey on Saving Bond for Noel Meade (in 1997).

Ally Cay I knew she wasn't useless but she disappointed the last day and I was scratching my head,. We tried the visor on her and it obviously woke her up. They went very hard and she was flat to the boards everywhere. She won well enough and I suppose the handicapper will probably give her a nice enough rise. She's still going to be in that low grade and we'll look for something similar again.
