Gordon Elliott quotes on Mitchouka (FR)

I'd say he's improved from the last day. All the juveniles are beating each other at the moment. I still don't think we've seen the winner of the Triumph Hurdle yet, whatever it's going to be. He'll go for the graded race at Fairyhouse in two weeks time I'd imagine, all being well. He's won twice and he's grand but if he wins a Triumph Hurdle I'd be surprised.

Trainer Quotes

Charles O'Brien quotes on Mastermind (IRE)

That was nice and he had a good first run (over hurdles) at Fairyhouse. He was a little bit free in Fairyhouse so we put the hood on him and it seems to have worked well and he switched off well today. He's not a bad horse but I was a bit concerned about the ground and Denis (O'Regan) said if it was the last race, he might have been in a bit of trouble but was able to find fresh ground all the way around today. There aren't a huge range of options for the three year olds but we'll look to the usual sort of programme and go for a winners' race next.

He's a horse that will mix and match it between the Flat and jumps. He'll definitely win plenty with a bit of luck,.
