Alderwood's focus is likely to be shifted towards the Guinness Kerry National in September after his fine run in the Galway Plate.

Tom Mullins' dual Cheltenham Festival winner turned in a typically stout display to take fourth spot in the Ballybrit feature.

Alderwood occupied the same position in the Kerry National 12 months ago and is again likely to head to Listowel.

"He ran a cracker on the day," said Mullins.

"To be beaten half a length and a head for second in a Galway Plate was a great effort.

"He looked to be coming back to himself when he ran in the Irish Grand National and he showed that again at Galway.

"I think we'll probably aim towards the Kerry National now and hopefully he stays in the same form.

"I think there might be one more big pot in him."
