Quotes on Armory (IRE)

You'd be delighted with him and we'll go for the Futurity with him,. He progressing lovely, he came forward lovely from his first to his second run and you'd have to be very happy with him. He looks like a horse, that as a three-year-old, a mile would be his trip. You never know, he could stay further, but he's not short of pace. At the Curragh he was very good when he got out. We're delighted with him.

The mile brought out the best in him,. He had a good run the last day, even over six furlongs. He's a good sort and can go anywhere now over seven to a mile. I wasn't sure he would handle that ground.

Quotes on Iberia (IRE)

We thought they were three nice colts [Sherpa finished sixth] but they were just ready to start. They were green and babyish. Ryan was very happy with his lad, they were all very happy. The winner was green for a minute when he dropped him down but then when he got it together he picked up well. He won't have any problem going up in trip but seven (furlongs) probably won't be a problem next time as he'll be way more clued in. When he quickened he just got caught a little bit but then he got organised. The Futurity could be an option for him. Seamus (Heffernan) said that he thought the third horse felt like a very smart horse.

Quotes on Justifier (IRE)

Colin said he is still green and handled the ground and will get a furlong extra no problem,. We do like him, we thought he had to run to 95 today to win and he did. He has done what we've asked him there and will genuinely improve for stepping up and he is ticking all the right boxes at the minute. It is five weeks to the Juvenile Stakes on Champions Weekend but we'll run wherever the race presents itself.

You'd be delighted with him. They are three lovely horses,. Seamie was very happy with his horse and Wayne was very happy as well. The winner could be a Chesham horse and so could the other two. I'd say the winner is nice, he picked up well and travelled well throughout the race. Donnacha was very happy with him.

Quotes on Rebel Tale (USA)

He's a lovely horse. Pat (Garvey) bought him in America and he qualified for one of these auction maidens so it was brilliant to get a win into him. When we step him up in trip we think there is a lot of improvement to come. He's very willing and very tough. He just wants to please and has a great temperament. We like him a lot and we just have to speak to Mr Garvey and see where we go from here.

Quotes on Roman Turbo (IRE)

He's a lovely smart horse. We thought he was ready to start, and thought he'd run well, but we weren't sure if he was good enough to win a Derby weekend maiden,. He was professional. He had the benefit of running in a barrier trial at Naas and I suppose that was as good as a run to him. We thought this was a nice place to get him started, on a nice track. Ronan said he just took a heave with him and got a little bit tired. I'd say he's smart. I'd say our two-year-olds might be smart enough. He's only the third one we've run and two have won first time out. I'd say it's a record for me to train two two-year-olds winners first time out!. I thought he'd come on from it as he's like me he thrives. We'll step him up now and could look at something like the Angelsey. He's very straight-forward and Ronan said when the gates opened he knew what to do. The owner is from Hong Kong. We had a horse for him last year, Little Turbo, and he won for us last year. He has two with us this year.
