Everything seems bizarre, but it was always going to be bizarre for 21-year-old Donnacha O’Brien who is getting to grips with his first season as a fully-fledged trainer.  O’Brien had been hoping to get some of his forward juveniles out in the coming weeks, but he has had to be patient and back off them in the current climate. Plans for his undefeated stable star Fancy Blue are up in the air too.  “It is strange, very strange. But, to be perfectly honest, everything was always going to be strange for me.
