Moyode Gold she had been schooling over hurdles and fences and is naturally a very good jumper so I couldn't believe she fell here (on New Year's Day), I suppose any horse can fall. Aine (O'Connor) rode her a couple of times in bumpers and she was just too slow. Today again she came off the bridle turning in but the farther she'll go the better she's going to be. She's a grand mare and works better at home than a few of the other mares that have won. I was surprised she didn't run better in a bumper but obviously she just wants a proper trip and something to jump. She's something to look forward to hopefully. The young lad is still going well with that 7lb and it was for very important owners, the wife and and the mother-in-law. She also got a five grand bonus there for fillies so it was a good day out.

Alohamora We were delighted with her in Limerick,. I had her in the amateur race tomorrow at Punchestown and just with the weight here, 9-9 after Gavin's claim, that's what made me come here. She did it well and she stays great. I said after she won in Limerick that you couldn't go far enough and all she does is stay. The young lad is riding great. The horse in the first and her were two particularly good rides for a claimer. I don't know where we go with her now but there are loads of options for her. She could go either over hurdles or fences now that we know she jumps so well.

Alohamora it is great to be young, as it took a brave horse and brave young man. Both horse and jockey were very brave down over the last couple and it was absolutely the difference. She is a consistent mare so she isn't dropping in the handicap so it's not easy for her. She wants extreme trips and we'll try and find races at those trips. She is our first runner over the Christmas, it is great to have a winner at Limerick, and we have a few for the new year to look forward to.
