Fletchers Flyer gave us the perfect start to the new season with a resolute victory in the concluding bumper at Punchestown on Wednesday evening.

It was a great thrill to enjoy my first success in Ireland at one of the the biggest race meetings of the year.

On only the third run of his life Fletchers Flyer shared the pacemaking for much of the race and held a handy advantage as they turned for home. But he had to dig deep in the closing stages to hold off two challengers in a tight finish.

He is a real galloper, has always shaped like a stayer, as you would expect of a point-to-point winner. But he also has plenty of speed and battled very well with the help of a fine ride by Derek O'Connor.

It was a very special day and caps another wonderful season.
