Sire Du Berlais just gets there!

Backers of long-time ante-post fancy Sire Du Berlais owe a huge debt of gratitude to jockey Barry Geraghty after The Festival's second most successful jockey of all time gave the seven-year-old the ride of the meeting so far to get him home a neck ahead of Tobefair.
 
Geraghty, who was taking his Festival score to 38 and completing a 19/1 double in the first two races following the success of Defi Du Seuil, was unlucky in the corresponding race 12 months on nose second Glenloe and it looked for much of the last mile as if he was going to struggle again on the well-backed winner, who traded at 240/1 in running. 
 
He said: "I thought I was in trouble coming away from three out - it got tight for room - but he rallied and rallied. It was a good battle and a game performance.
 
"My three kids are at home watching - Síofra, Órla and Rian. Órla's class had the TV on in the classroom for the last race, so I hope they had it in for this race as well."
 
He added: "Luckily enough when I got stuck into him he pulled out for me and fought his way back into it. It was a good performance from the horse because he wasn't in the prettiest spots. There was plenty of traffic, but he was responding to urgings and was a willing partner.
 
"I was never confident, but I was hoping to get Mark Walsh (Not Many Left) on my outside, and then when I got him I saw another one (Tobefair) coming on my inside, so then I was just hoping for the line. There was a lot of hoping.
 
"It's just great to get winners here. Not every lad is as fortunate as I am to get on good horses who can win, and there are good lads in there who aren't riding winners. It means so much. It's the be all and end all."
