Irish Examiner - Racing - - CHELTENHAM PREVIEW 2017 -

“My best fes­ti­val mem­ory has to be rid­ing the win­ner in the four-miler on Poker Sivola for Ferdy Mur­phy in 2010. That was my first win­ner at Cheltenham, it’s a huge race that ev­ery ama­teur wants to win. It’s steeped in history. And then to win the County Hur­dle on Thou­sand Stars a cou­ple of days later was spe­cial. That was a great year. My first big mem­ory would prob­a­bly be Com­manche Court in ’97 when he won the Tri­umph. We were all there that day and it was a great day for dad and the yard.”
