Anyone else still re-watching the Champion Hurdle, and just sitting there in awe of Constitution Hill? (Posted a day later)


An afternoon of breathtaking performances on Tuesday included a brilliant renewal of the Arkle! El Fabiolo produced a performance rating which surpassed each of @WillieMullinsNH previous Arkle winners, including Un De Sceaux who ran to 171 in 2015.

Unbelievable ride from @JohnnyBurke2 A ride that deserved so much more! just lucky to have the better mare on the day. The magnificent Honeysuckle!!! Well done @rachaelblackmor @HenrydeBromhead we’ll never be able to repay you for the amazing days U’ve given us!

If you want a Champion Bumper winner send a mare to Muhaarar. And if you want to see a Champion Bumper winner go to Roscommon on a Tuesday in June. The great game.

Whether it’s hurling or horse racing John Kiely and JP McManus are unstoppable!

Stephen Cass@CassStephen

This would warm your heart. Everyone in Dungarvan will tell you what a nice man and a caring man John Kiely is. He’s a hero to us. Just magic.
