Aleef He's been a great addition for us. That's three he's won and he's been placed a good few times,. He did it well there and Shane said he enjoyed the slower ground. He's won on fast ground and also has form in England on the all-weather. He's Martin Hanley's first horse so it's great.

Schroders Mistake She had a good first run and that race in Leopardstown has worked out well,. We got very brave then and took a chance in a stakes race. She wasn't disgraced and ran a solid race. In Down Royal it was a bit sharp for her. Niall rode her at home since and thought she had got stronger and come forward. She showed another facet to her game there today by handling that ground, which has gone on soft, as she had been running on top of the ground. She seemed to lean a bit left and we'd need to iron that out, as you can't really be doing that. I'm delighted with that and it's nice for the owners. We might go for the final of this. That's seven and there is also a nice race on the same day over six so we have options.

Believe In Beauty She's been very consistent and is deserving of that,. She's been solid the whole way through. It was her first on the surface but Niall did say that she'd really like it. She likes fast ground, she doesn't bend her knee, and he was right. Even from a poor draw she broke smart and got a good tow into the race. He said he was going well everywhere. She was dead straight up the home run. David is away in Spain for the week on an annual golf trip with his brothers. He's had a good year and has been a good supporter and been lucky. We'll look for a nursery or something here. She's actually in the Forans series final and it's a nice pot. She'll run away, she's taking it well, and we'll keep going to the end of the season.
