Seeyouinvinnys I was hoping to get soft ground for him somewhere, I always thought he wanted winter ground and that he would be okay when he got winter ground. I was within an ace of taking him out but then thought sure we'll run him and leave it. I didn't give the owners any great encouragement or any encouragement with the ground, I just thought it wouldn't be soft enough. He's looking better than he has been all year. He just seems to have turned a corner but we'll leave him out anyway because he is a soft-ground horse and we'll leave him until next season. He stays, stays, stays and just wants three miles. I'd say he will jump fences as well. Sean said he was just a different horse today.

Calicojack That horse has been unlucky, he deserved to win a race. We always thought he wasn't a bad horse but it has taken him a long time to get his head in front. Hopefully he will stay in front now. He's just been unlucky, he has been running in better races. If he's okay and he comes out of it okay he might go on for another little while. He seems to handle the better ground which I didn't think he would. That's Eoin's first winner. He's a nice lad from Cork and he rides very well. Hopefully he can carry on and ride a few more. He's been with me all winter. He's a lad that deserves to get an opportunity but it is very difficult to get these lads going.

Sixshooter I don’t bet but I couldn’t believe what price he was and backed him at 25/1. We think he’s a nice horse and he won very well the last day. He’s still as green as grass, and Mark said he won more snug than it looked. He’ll have the summer off now and hopefully he’s a nice novice to look forward to. He jumps well.

Laura Bullion She's named after a member of Butch Cassidy's Wild Bunch Gang,. I was a bit disappointed with her a couple of times before. I'm not surprised she won and I thought the trip was a help. We bred her ourselves and she's a full-sister to Union Gap. She's the first one to have won out of the mare so hopefully she can breed a few more winners. She's probably big enough and strong enough to be a jumper as well in time. I'm delighted she won. She seemed to go on that surface quite well and of course yer man in the saddle is a big help. It keeps the owner happy as well!
