Byrnes in no rush with VinnieHeadlines
Charles Byrnes

Charles Byrnes has yet to make any firm plans for Our Vinnie following his determined triumph at Cork earlier this month.

A winning bumper horse, the five-year-old was well beaten on his hurdling debut at Listowel, but showed huge improvement when narrowly beaten by According To Trev when sent across the water to Cheltenham.

He confirmed that promise when narrowly defeating the promising Rule The World in Grade Three company last time and the dream is he will return to Cheltenham next spring for the Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle at the Festival.

"I don't have any plans for him at the moment. He's just having a few easy weeks," said Byrnes.

"It was a good performance from him the last day. The Albert Bartlett at Cheltenham is the long-term aim, but obviously he would have to keep improving to go there."

Byrnes also issued positives updates on stable stars Weapon's Amnesty and Solwhit.

The former has been sidelined by injury since winning the 2010 RSA Chase, while six-time Grade One-winning hurdler Solwhit was last seen finishing second to old rival Hurricane Fly in the 2011 Irish Champion Hurdle.

"Weapon's Amnesty is coming along well, but there are no plans for him before Christmas," said the trainer. "Solwhit is fine at the moment and he should be out around Christmas time as well."
