I'm not one that sits around thinking of setting goals or targets at this time of year but 2014 was a very good one for me with Thousand Stars in France and Your Busy in the Kerry National and I'd take your hand and all off if you offered me something similar for 2015.

I would obviously love to ride at Cheltenham again this year and see how we get on over there and naturally I'd love to ride in another Grand National at Aintree but this is horse racing and you never know what is going to happen or what is around the corner.

Like every jockey, the main aim is to stay sound and healthy for the year and after that we'll take what comes our way.

I suppose Foxrock, trained by Dad and Dai Bando trained by Ross are the two horses I'm looking forward to seeing progress throughout the year.

Foxrock ran a brilliant race in the Paddy Power at Leopardstown considering he had to carry top weight and he seems none the worse for the run so we'll regroup and go again with him.

Dai Bando was a little disappointing at Leopardstown but the ground was heavy and St Stephen's Day threw up a few strange results so Ross will have a look at the calendar and see where he goes next and hopefully he'll bounce back from that.
