“He’s improving and was probably a bit weak last year. He’s an idle horse and Conor Maxwell has done a good job with him. He rides him in all his work and rode him in his last two races but unfortunately couldn’t ride him with the weight.
“We ran into one at Gowran and as a result were 10lb higher today in a better quality race. He’s done it well and probably needed it a bit in Gowran as he wouldn’t kill himself at home. He’ll probably get a bit further too.” Fozzy Stack
Star Of Cashel justified favouritism to win the the Support Naas Local Businesses Handicap at Naas on Saturday for owners Peter Piller, Mrs Paul Shanahan & Mrs M V Magnier earlier on the card.
