Stay Humble Willie (Mullins) wanted me to be up there and positive. He said sometimes a lot of people think they are going to go on and then you get left behind. I said I would ride him good and positive, he's not the quickest in the world but he stays going all day. Long may any success continue but I've been with Willie a good while now and have a good strike rate with him. It's great to get a winner especially in these colours (Andrea & Graham Wylie).

Timi Roli Willie is just fantastic at placing them. I had ridden him last year on soft ground and he just didn't give me the same feel. He was put away for the winter, and Willie picked this race for him from a long way back and he has won well. It was a fair performance and hopefully he will step up from here.

Sapphire Lady It was a good performance and Willie has found a good opportunity for her,. She was unlucky the last day as if she had helped David (Mullins) out a bit at the last she would have won but I'm the lucky one who got to reap the rewards today. She'll make a nice summer novice and is versatile trip-wise. She'll jump a fence in time but we'll win hurdles first.

Dramalarma Lucy She did it well and she is a nice filly by Yeats. She has shown me plenty at home. She got balloted out at Ballinrobe and I was disappointed with that, but it's good that she got in here. I don't know whether she'll go for a winners bumper, I might go jumping with her. She is more a hurdles mare than a winners bumper mare, but Patrick might have other ideas. We'll see.

Good Thyne Tara It was a good performance - on her Killarney run - I won the race and I thought it rode a good race - that entitled her to be starting favourite here. She's improved from there and hopefully she'll win plenty more through the summer. It's good for Neil (King, owner). He is a good supporter of Willies and he likes his mares. It's great to see him with a nice one.

Masons Daughter I ride her every morning at home and she is quite a tricky madam. It was a very good performance considering how keen she was and giving away a lot of weight,. I think we'll go jumping now and she got black-type in bumpers and I expect her to get black-type over hurdles too. She's not the biggest but is strong and is also hard on herself at home too.

Asthuria it was a great spare ride to get but it was unfortunate for Rachael. I actually rode her before in Naas when she was second to Benie Des Dieux and she is a brilliant jumper and that's her big asset. She was able to dictate with the step up in trip today and we had things under control most of the way. She is some jumper in fairness to her and it was nice to get it.
