he's a grand horse, and we'll look for a winners race. I'd say a step up in trip will suit him.

Gordon Elliott quotes on Flaxen Flare (IRE)

That's a lovely start. He got a good education the further he went. Barry Geraghty won on him in Galway and said he might not have the scope for winter so that's why we came here.

Trainer Quotes

Mrs John Harrington quotes on Woodland Opera (IRE)

It's great as there are a lot of the Coopers (owners) here today,. I probably got his trip right for the winter ground. I don't think he gets any further than two miles on heavy ground. He does go on it but I kept running him over two-and-a-half and he doesn't get it. Over the winter he'll stick to any two-mile handicaps or whatever. He'll have run out of his novice career now because he wouldn't go two-and-a-half at Fairyhouse. We'll probably find something for him over Christmas. It was lovely to be able to get into this race because he's rated 150 or something rather scary like that. I'm not sure where we go but we'll find something for him. He'll probably have to go to Naas like his mother (Opera Hat)!. It's great to get him back to winning ways and I think the trainer probably made a bit of a nonsense by running him over too far on soft ground. As he's gotten older he gotten stronger. He jumped well and he battled very well today.

Trainer Quotes

W P Mullins quotes on Good Thyne Tara (GB)

It was a good performance - on her Killarney run - I won the race and I thought it rode a good race - that entitled her to be starting favourite here. She's improved from there and hopefully she'll win plenty more through the summer. It's good for Neil (King, owner). He is a good supporter of Willies and he likes his mares. It's great to see him with a nice one.
