Arthur's Quay He is a lovely horse and the step up to 2m4f did the job,. His brother (The Big Apple) wasn't a bad horse, I won a bumper on him so he must have been all right and it is a lovely family. We always liked him from day one and it is great he has gone and done it. It's grand to get today over with and Frank (Berry) and J.P. (McManus, owner) will come up with a plan.

Bay Hill He's a great little horse to have and he's after winning ten races now. I'm delighted with him,. Horses like him are hard to come by and he wins every year. He's ran 40 times and has won 10. Darragh said he got a bit tight there and said he would have been an unlucky loser. Darragh is flying and is a free 5lb at the moment. I was keen enough to run him over fences but we'll see. We'll see how he is and there's a novice chase in Listowel but in some of those winners of one he can be a bit wrong at the weights. We'll keep him going anyway. He likes that good ground and as long as we get that we'll keep the show on the road.

Act In Time It's great for Mark to get back with a winner and he has been in with me for the past month or so. He was in getting fit and it's great to give him a winner,. This horse has only won three times and the three times have been around here so he likes the place and he won this race last year. He will go to Listowel next for the same race as he slipped up in last year - he would have been better off falling in it as he tried to save himself and gave himself a wrench. It's great to get him back.

Walking On Glass He's a grand little horse and he won well. Tramore didn't seem to take anything out of him and I'm delighted with that. We'll wait and see what the handicapper does but the Tote has those races for syndicate horses and there is one in Bellewstown with a good pot so we might aim him for there. We'll keep him going anyway, he's a grand little fun horse. He could probably go back on the Flat as he ran well in Galway from a bad draw. He's tough and hardy, he's small but at least he tries.
