Trainer Quotes

Noel Meade quotes on A Genie In Abottle (IRE)

He likes the hill and the heavy ground and when the going gets tough, the tough get going! That describes him well as he's not the quickest in the world but he'll stay going for you and keep trying and trying and trying. He had some very good form last year, even his run behind Disko was a good run on goodish ground whereas on that ground today he takes a bit of beating, especially over a trip. He'll probably be entered in the Grade 1 Nicholson Chase in Down Royal but maybe the Troytown Chase is the race for him. It'll be heavy ground at Navan and that might be his job and might be a more realistic target.

Gordon Elliott quotes on A Toi Phil (FR)

I was worried about how he would handle the real heavy ground but he was good. He’s probably better in Grade 2’s or Grade 3’s rather than a Grade 1. It was a good performance.

Trainer Quotes

Noel Meade quotes on Apache Stronghold (IRE)

He did what we thought he could do today and it was a good race with no hiding places. He'll go for the 2m5f (JLT Novices Chase) at Cheltenham and will go straight there - whatever he faces there, he'll face and whatever happens, happens. When he got beaten by Don Poli it looked like he didn't get three miles but we might try it again in time. I'm delighted for Paul (Hunt) who has been a great supporter and it's great for him to win a race like this. He's not here as he's on his way back from Dubai. Paul is a fabulous guy to have on your side. He doesn't try to force it and lets the horse do the talking.

Trainer Quotes

John E Kiely quotes on Carlingford Lough (IRE)

I didn't think he could win two (Irish Gold Cups). He was in good form but I was just hoping to be in the first four. I told Mark to ride him to finish, and it worked. I think he won despite the ground, and if he was up with the pace I don’t think he would have got home. Going to the last you could see he was finding a new lease of life, and I thought he had a chance then. It’s lovely for Mark as he’s done a lot of the ground work.

Trainer Quotes

Noel Meade quotes on Disko (FR)

He seems in very good form and we were very happy with the bit of work he did in Fairyhouse last week. I suppose the three miles would be a little bit of a question mark, but I think he'll be all right. We're very happy with him and he's going there in good shape.

Trainer Quotes

Mrs John Harrington quotes on Our Duke (IRE)

I can’t believe it, I really can’t. I may look calm but I’m shaking inside! He was up there all the way, he may have made one mistake but he jumped beautifully and Robert rode him with such confidence. He was absolutely convinced that he was going to stay and he rode him like that. He actually loved the ground as I was a bit worried about it drying out. I could see the three of them were going away and he just kept going. At the fourth last the pack seemed to be closing and he just changed gear again. I knew he was so relaxed and Robbie knows him so well. For a horse having just his fourth run in a chase it was a great performance. We all have to get there but he looks a Gold Cup horse. That’s why he didn’t go to Cheltenham this year as we wanted to wait and go to the Gold Cup next year. We’ll keep him and Sizing John apart and see what happens. I haven’t raced him much and he has very few runs under his belt. It’s hard to comprehend winning the Gold Cup and the Irish National. It’s taken me a long time to get the hang of training these staying chasers!. Robbie rode his first ever winner for me. We get on very well. I give out to him if he does something wrong but he doesn’t do much wrong these days.

Trainer Quotes

Noel Meade quotes on Road To Respect (IRE)

I'm delighted. We had Disko and himself in this and felt this fella just comes a little bit quicker and the other fella takes a little more work,. I think Disko will go to the north for the JN Wine Chase. It could well be that this fella goes for the second season novice in the north, I don't know and we'll see what happens. He's back well and he done that well. We're not surprised he won, we thought he came on a good bit since last year. He seemed very well and he doesn't take a lot of work, it's just keeping him fresh and keeping him happy. He said he was a bit rusty early on and landed a bit steep and whatever, but when he went he got there real well. He stays. In fairness Eoin (Griffin) said that to me, he couldn't believe we were talking about two-and-a-half. All along he always felt that three miles is his trip. He's matured into a nice horse. That's the softest he's won on I think. We're thrilled. Hopefully he comes sound and he's alright. We can think about where we go after that. Anything is open to him. He's in the big one in the north as well but it might come a bit soon and we have Disko. There is a board meeting every time and decisions are made. In fairness Mike and Eddie do sort of row in with you and go with what you say. It's not all one-way traffic or anything like that. There are other horses to be considered. I know with Mike the one thing he always seems to do is run in Grade Ones so if we go in a good race there will be no problem with him.

Trainer Quotes

W P Mullins quotes on Shaneshill (IRE)

He’s improving. Funnily Paul thought the nicer ground suited him and Ruby thought the soft ground was too soft for Clondaw Warrior,. He jumped fantastic. He got a good lead early in the race and made sure it was a good pace which is what he wants. The race was run to suit him. I’d imagine the Stayers Hurdle would be his owners preferred option. He couldn’t do anymore than win here. We’ll have a look but I’d imagine that’s what the plans will be. I’m disappointed with Clondaw Warrior as I think he’s better than that and I think better ground will suit him better as well. Looking at his legs he had muck right up to his fetlocks. I’d say he was digging into it and it wasn’t suiting him. I’d say it’ll be Cheltenham with him. I don’t think he’ll be going to Dubai. I think he’ll improve from that. Even though he’s had all those runs he looks big. He’s a horse that does himself very well and eats like a horse.

Trainer Quotes

Henry De Bromhead quotes on Sub Lieutenant (IRE)

he was impressive in Limerick (in October) but this was a different class of race. I'm delighted to see him do something similar. He's funny, he's a character and is just a brilliant jumper - when he sees a fence he just wants to go and jump it. David gave him a brilliant ride. They were hard at it from a long way and he was up there the whole way. I'd like to speak to the lads and see where he goes next - being a negative fellow I picked out the winners of two conditions chase in Gowran, just in case, at the end of the month but thankfully he's not eligible for that anymore!. The John Durkan Chase would be one but I'll speak to the lads and he was entered in the King George but we'll see as he's only a second season novice.

Henry De Bromhead quotes on Valseur Lido (FR)

it was a super ride and he had been working very well. He's new to the yard so you don't really know but he did a lovely piece of work the other day. In that piece of work he just showed a gear that a real good three miler may not necessarily have. I'll speak to Michael and Eddie (O'Leary) and see what we'll do for the future. We offered the ride to Ruby and he came back and said he wanted to ride him. I wouldn't imagine he’d drop back in trip but he's new to me and Michael, Eddie (O’Leary) and Ruby know more about him.

Trainer Quotes

Andrew Lynch quotes on Zabana (IRE)

they went some gallop and I thought they went too fast. He's not 100% fit yet but he had enough to get there. He might go to Leopardstown (for the Lexus) if the ground stayed right for him - I’ll have to talk to Chris (Jones, owner) but we are taking it one step at a time.
