Connections of Carriganog are refusing to get carried away after the four-year-old's runaway victory at Wexford on Sunday.

Having made an impressive start to his career over hurdles at Clonmel at the start of the month, the Aidan O'Brien-trained youngster was snapped up by leading owner JP McManus prior to his second start over jumps.

Carriganog could not have been more impressive in winning by 16 lengths and is likely to be tested at a higher level on his next appearance.

But McManus' racing manager, Frank Berry, is keen to manage expectations at this stage.

He said: "You'd have to be happy with the way he did it. It probably wasn't much of a race, but he could do no more than he did.

"Aidan will give him a couple of weeks and we'll see where we are. There are no plans at the moment. He did it grand the other day, but it's a bit early to be getting carried away."
