Trainer Quotes

Seamus Fahey quotes on Bert Leaf (GB)

She had some good form last year but it tapered off towards the end of the year and we probably kept her on the go a little bit too long. She's owned by Robbie Smithers' grandparents (Peter and Marie Davis) but Robbie couldn't do the weight. She was basically bought for him to ride. We'll look for something similar and she likes a little dig in the ground. She missed the break and he was lucky that the gaps came up the inside. She may go on and jump a hurdle.

C Byrnes quotes on Minnies Secret (IRE)

she loves the ground and while she hasn't a whole lot of speed, she can go the same speed on good ground as she can on that ground. Her run in Gowran was a good run and I'll go for a winners' bumper next as she's not great to jump.

She has a beautiful pedigree and is a beautiful filly. She always went well at home and we just had to get her fit; usually with the likes of her, when they reach the track the pedigree kicks in. She got a beautiful ride and will go for a mares' winners bumper next.

Trainer Quotes

Thomas Mullins quotes on Tara Dylan (IRE)

I was hoping she would win so she'd get a rating that would get her into the 1m6f handicap at Leopardstown. That was the target,. She's improving the whole time and today's job was to get a few pounds. She won over 1m6f at Leopardstown the first day and Gary thought the ten furlongs was a bit short today. We won't get too greedy, we're happy with the three wins this season, but the plan is Leopardstown. I think she would have won the last day but she never gave herself a chance. Even today over this trip I was a bit worried she was too keen down the back.

Trainer Quotes

Gavin Patrick Cromwell quotes on Biddy The Boss (IRE)

The last thing I said to him was keep it simple. I was cursing Jamie (Codd)! When she got to the front she pricked her ears. It was very impressive the way she quickened. Where from here I'm not sure, we'll look and see if there is a mares' winners' race. The mare that beat her the first day in Tramore (Classic Theatre) went and won a maiden hurdle and Henry de Bromhead thinks a bit of her.
