I was surprised that Coconut Splash ran and fully expected him to be withdrawn. As i said last night he hates heavy ground and he was ridden today just to get round in one piece. He didnt come under any pressure or riding to finish 2nd, neither did the winner who was the better horse.

The jockey bookings in Ireland were clearly significant as the 1st string won for Gordon Elliott, Torygraph running an odd race under an easy ride. Brace Yourself an early faller after a rare mistake. Couple to go, both well supported

Unlike the last couple, there will be no tips this Monday

Don’t forget those cards and flowers!
