Verdict

Noel Meade: "I couldn't be happier, he jumped like a buck. He will improve for that, but he was fit enough for the race. Paul thinks he'll be better with a good gallop. He hasn't schooled on grass, he schooled on the all-weather so you never know. He does like getting goodish ground, but he should go on anything. The Drinmore at Fairyhouse has to be the race but I also have Very Wood, although he may want further. We'll have to see about whether we can get a race into him (Apache Stronghold) before the Drinmore."
