Drakensberg The faster the ground the better. He ran so well in Dundalk and he just wants nice quick ground. He's a horse that had a wind issue and I thought coming up the hill in Galway wasn't the job for him. We thought he had performed so well in Dundalk and the like of here was similar on quick ground. It's brought the best out of him.

Mr Everest Things are going very well and it is brilliant. He had a couple of good runs over hurdles and was second in this race last year. On Monday night we thought he had a great chance in the amateur handicap but unfortunately there was no gallop and we got no run. Maybe it was a good thing, though, as he bounced out well out of it and came home great and not a bother on him. We are delighted to get this win today with him and he's a novice for the rest of the season now. He's not too far off the top novices and you'd be hoping to go the novice route rather than the handicap route and hopefully he can also run in those top staying flat races.

Upgraded She’s been threatening all the time and ran very well in Ballinrobe. It was great to see the form with Tom Mullins filly (Bercasa, third) winning earlier, and that gave us a bit of confidence.
