Celebrity Status I'm not shocked by any means as we've always thought a lot of him but he's just never put it together on the track. He's run a few good races but never finished his race out well. We've never see the horse on track that we have seen at home. In fairness to Michael and John O’Flynn they have been very patient and given me every chance with him. Today was nearly last chance saloon. He did burst in Thurles and that set him back head wise. We said we'd pop him off in front today as he jumps well and had so much experience. It was a lovely opportunity for him, and he could go back over fences.

Don't Let Go That was super and a great pot to get with her. She's been in and out a bit but I'd say she's better over fences. She got caught in a bit at Downpatrick and Sligo over hurdles and didn't enjoy it. She'd a great run in Punchestown the last day which gave her a bit of confidence, and the small field today suited her. That's a hurdle and chase won with her now but I'd say she'll definitely stay chasing now. Ricky gave her a super ride and I just told him to go out and ride her with plenty of confidence, wait all day, and he did that. He's a very good 5lb claimer and a great lad in the yard.
