                  His RSA win was an absolute rout, just great to watch.

                      The way Davy slowly but surely passed horses was so satisfying to watch, one of my favourite ever rides.

                        • Faugheen, Benie Des Dieux and the mighty Douvan all being retired by RR. What might have been with Douvan only for injury..

                          • Faugheen was probably the first horse I truly followed from bumper all the way through his career.

                            Telling my dad he would beat Red Sherlock in the ballymore is probably the first time I proved him wrong about horses ever and turned tide for our tipping relationship!

                            However I am truly gutted about Douvan, I will argue for the rest of my life he should have been better than Altior, and I hate that people bring up the 2017 CC as a reason for him being overrated. The horse had a broke bloody pelvis! So quick away from his fences and devoured the hill. I bloody loved that horse.

                            • Faugheen - I geniunely feel like my best friend has joined the boat to travel with the elves to the undying lands

                              Injury robbed off of perhaps his very peak - but then he did also go on to place in a stayers Hurdle and a Marsh. What an animal

                              • Faugheen gave me my best ever day on a racecourse. He was unbeatable in his prime and I'd have him as the best champion hurdler since Istabraq. If they'd gone over fences earlier I think he'd have won a Gold Cup too.

                                A well earned retirement for all three.
