Cache Queen It was great that we kept faith because she'd gone off the boil a little bit. I had her in at Hamilton twice this year and they were cancelled. We were going to go again with her last week but we said we'd wait for this. We worked her up here and she worked well. It's great for Conor and Josephine Hughes, who own the Mullingar Park Hotel. They've kept faith in her. She won a couple of times last year and was very consistent but she just struggled then with a high mark. She's back down and hopefully she'll win again for them. We'll keep her on the go here and see what happens.

Royal Admiral we had been running him over a 1m2f and 1m4f and I never thought he had the pace here to take on my two sprinters (over today's 7f) but it's a funny game that he would come and do it. He jumped out, made it and stayed going so I'm delighted. I thought the other horse was going to go by him two down but he stuck at it well. They are two great riders (O'Hare and Barry O'Neill on the runner-up) and they stuck at it brilliant.
