Honeysuckle it was a tougher race than the odds suggested but there is no easy Grade 1. It was great to see her win on her first run back but I'm delighted with the performance. Last year the Irish Champion Hurdle didn't do us any harm so we might look at that but we'll see how she is after today and makes plans. You'd always be tempted by races like the Champion Hurdle (in March) but we'll head for the Irish Champion Hurdle and then maybe we will firm up on plans.

Gua Du Large I'm delighted with that - he is still very babyish and it is all new to him. He is a nice horse obviously and hopefully he'll keep progressing. Rachael said he was pretty green when he came off it (the bridle) and she was happy with him. I'm delighted to get the win for Robcour and we'll aim for something at Christmas.

Minella Indo I'm delighted with that. He did everything good, it was a lovely race for him and I'm glad we've got it behind us now. You couldn't have asked him to do it any better. He jumped really well and did everything he had to do. I would imagine we'll aim towards the Savills Chase at Christmas, I think that will be our next one. He's had two nice races for second-season novices and now we have to go against the big lads and see how we fare there.

Notebook he was a little bit rusty over the first few but then jumped really well and stayed at it really well. It’s good to see him back to form and I’d say he’ll go to Leopardstown at Christmas. He loves it around there and has won two Grade 1s there. Rachael said he took a blow at the fourth last and hopefully he’ll come on for it. I’m delighted with him.
