Downpatrick Fri, 24th May, 2019
Manomine we knew he liked it around here and it is horses for courses especially around here - I think this owner (Jimmy Matthews) would nearly buy a house in Downpatrick!. It was quite a big surprise (that he jumped well). This is why it has taken us so long to come hurdling because his jumping has been awful. His maiden hurdle and all he was absolutely appalling. He was different class today and he seems to be enjoying himself. Whatever Kate Kelly did in that Punchestown charity race, we have to thank her!. Maybe in a better quality race he could settle in. He just has a big long stride and he just seems to be enjoying himself (out in front).
