L’HOMME PRESSE wins the Gr.1 Brown Advisory Novices’ Chase at the Cheltenham Festival 2022

His win in the Rehearsal gave us a lot of pleasure last season and there were a lot of very good horses a long way behind him when he unseated at the last in the King George. That run confirmed everything he’d done up to that point. You’ve got to have the Gold Cup as the pinnacle this season but there are lots of nice races between now and then.

Venetia Williams, trainer of L’Homme Presse

IMPAIRE ET PASSE wins the Gr.1 Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival 2023 by over 6 lengths

The change of pace up to the last and what happened after! Wow. That’s the horse’s fourth run in his life, there is huge improvement there.

Willie Mullins immediately after Impaire Et Passe’s Ballymore win at Cheltenham.

DIAMOND RI – 4YO 13 length Bumper winner at Warwick

He [Diamond Ri] is potentially my next graded horse coming up through. He is doing things that a lot of our horses don’t do. He won his bumper, and our horses don’t normally do that. He is really exciting. 

Joe Tizzard, trainer of Diamond Ri

SHARP OBJECT – Bumper winner by over 4 lengths, also 2nd to Aurora Vega in Listed Bumper at Gowran
Debut 4YO P2P winner CANTICO wins in game fashion for Andy and Willy Slattery at Liscarroll. Subsequently purchased and now in training with Willie Mullins
