Deilginis She is a nice staying mare and loves soft ground. She is a funny one because she always hits a flat spot in her races but she comes home well. It looked like she was maybe in trouble at the last one down the back but JJ said her jumping kept her in it all the way,. The conditions of the race were perfect - well I'd have put another half mile on it maybe, and the soft ground was a big help to her. She can go for a handicap chase up in trip next - she might be higher rated over fences than hurdles after that but probably not by much.

Home By The Lee He's done nothing wrong all the way along. He ran a lovely race the last day in Naas and came forward from that,. JJ said that he jumped the third last very well and ended up getting to the front a bit sooner than he wanted. He was waiting a little bit then but at the back of the last when he got hold of him he galloped out to the line well. He's a very nice horse. He could maybe go into a confined novice now or a graded race. We'll see but we'll take it baby steps with him as he's probably a staying horse for the future. He's only just turned five so he's a young horse still.
