Velvet Elvis Tt was great. He was an expensive purchase (£95,000) - he wasn't my purchase, he was bought by John (McConnell, for owner Derek Kierans) and there is a certain level of expectation when you shell out the dough and it is nice to get the win. It is tough going out there but he stays well and likes that ground. I ran him on good ground in Punchestown and he ran well although soft ground is more to his taste.
