JONJO  O'NEILL HAD THIS TO SAY "This horse came back from winning at Leopardstown
over the Christmas holiday not quite right.  He'd caught a chill and wasn't well at all. He's not a  big robust horse and he needs minding and time between his races. Everyone at the place put their shoulders to the wheel over getting him right, gave it everything . It was really only in the past few days that he really came to himself, came right. He was like a flower who finally bloomed."
