Macgiloney That was brilliant. He was gutsy and loved the battle,. When I entered him I wasn't sure was I going to be able to run with the ratings but if you don't run them you don't win anything. I don't think the handicapper can react too much because I went through the form of the others and their ratings had maybe been got through good placing by Gordon. I didn't think in a handicap that they would have run to marks in the 130s. I'm thrilled with this lad. He's always had a big future and he's still improving all the time. Chasing will be the job long term. He's owned by some good guys, Michael Moloney, Pat Gilmartin and John Gilmartin. They've been with me a long time. He won a bumper here last year and he's been placed a lot of times. They've got some great days out of him. He'll go to Galway now, whether he runs in the three-mile handicap or the two-and-a-half novice. Killarney might come a bit soon. He's a nice horse to have going forward. He wants all of that three miles. We didn't go mad there so I had to get involved a bit sooner than ideal but it worked out well.

Ellaat That was grand. I didn't think it was going to happen after he jumped out of the stalls. He normally wings the gates but he walked out today and I stopped looking and thought this has gone wrong,.

Ozzie's Way I would have settled for a dead heat to be honest! It's a long run down from the third last,. To be honest he was a different horse today. It's a pity Tim (Conroy) couldn't be here. He bred him and he is a great racegoer. It is a pity he couldn't travel today. We had a frustrating enough evening as a few didn't run up to scratch so it is good to get a winner. We'll possibly look for a beginners' chase for him, one of those rated beginners'. He jumps well and is from a very good family.
