Top Moon that's my first ever treble and I didn't manage to do it in point-to-points. He didn't travel, jumped away fine, I thought we were beaten down the back, I thought we were beaten turning for him but he stuck at it well and tried to the line. He had a loot going down to the last but actually won well at the line. He probably would stay further and he is a four year old too so is a nice horse.

Cerberus He won very well. I'm delighted for the lads who own him. Aidan O'Brien is the headmaster of the school. He handled the ground well, we were a bit worried about that before. I'd say he could come back here next month for the Grade 3 race. He got very close to the horse that won very well up the north, A Wave Of The Sea, in Punchestown and I think it would make sense to go there. You'd have to be impressed with him there.

Embittered he was a decent bumper horse and he jumped well. He did well to win as I thought he’d want the race. He was a bit keen in his bumpers but he settled well today. We’ve put a hood on him and spent a lot of time trying to teach him to relax. JJ gave him a lovely ride.

Thundering Nights Shane said she was never going but she has won with her ears pricked. When she turned in he said she went one way and then the other but once the penny drops with her she might be ok,. She is tough and will probably end up being a 1m4f filly. I don't know the strength of the race but she toughed it out with her ears pricked. The other filly (fourth placed Blackcatblackitten) ran on well too and they actually ran together the last day too and finished about the same distance apart. They are two nice fillies going forwards.

Degraves He travelled well, Shane said he quickened up very well and had a bit of a look when he got to the front,. He'll have his break now and come back for a nice race in the spring. He's a Camelot so he'll go ten furlongs anyway and then we'll go from there.

Thames River I liked him the first day, he was very raw. He's obviously stepped up a bit today but he's still quite raw. He's got a bit of an engine and that got him through. He's pricking his ears and he's all over the shop. I think he'll be better next year.

Patrick Sarsfield Obviously he was a short price and was entitled to win but I was delighted with that and Donnacha was very happy with him. He hadn't run for over a year before Cork so he was entitled to come on from it. We think he's a nice horse, and with his rating he was entitled to go and win a race like that. My immediate reaction is that would probably be it for the year now but we'll have to speak to the owners and go from there. He'll be a nice horse next year and he should stay further being by Australia.
