Mitchouka We have a lot of schooling done with him. He'd lost his confidence and Gordon (Elliott, previous trainer) and Keith Donoghue had both said that. In fairness to Donie McInerney he has done a hell of a lot of schooling with him. We bought him in October, gave him seven weeks off and had him ready for Leopardstown (Christmas) but he gave himself a bad enough over-reach and I couldn't run him. The main objective today was actually for a clear round of jumping and whatever happened after that happened. I'm delighted with him and he has a massive engine. I don't know where we go with him but I'm sure there'll be something coming up in the next few weeks. He goes to the beach once a week and if he stayed three miles, he'd be some horse over banks but he's probably too quick.
