Top of the morning to you! Here we are in the Emerald Isles and very nice it is to be here. We have just walked the course at Tattersalls and I have to say that I am immensely pleased that we didn't go to the huge effort of bringing horses over as the ground is appalling. It is rock hard and rough and I can only hope that they are planning to water all night and all day leading up to the start time as it is totally unraceable at the moment. I will never complain about the ground in the UK again!
