Trainer Quotes

Mrs John Harrington quotes on Rock The World (IRE)

What a day. He was fantastic, that horse. He was third last year and he had a wind op after he ran here in the autumn. I couldn't run him at home as the ground was too heavy, so I gave him a couple of racecourse gallops. He loves quick ground, he absolutely loves it. He'a beautiful jumper. He's pinged the last and stayed on all the way up the hill. It's fantastic for me, I shall have a grin on my face for about a month.

He seems to come well at Cheltenham every year. He's an absolute superstar and we love him to bits. Jamie also gave him a great ride. It was a great result as we also had the second. If you have a plan, you have to try and do it right. We've had an unbelievable week. It's been a dream come true.

Trainer Quotes

W P Mullins quotes on Polidam (FR)

I was just hoping that something would win, and it's grand to win a nice prize like that up here on a Saturday. The winner certainly enjoys that ground and the trip is no problem to him. We think he'll improve again. If the winner hadn't been in it the second horse would have won with his head in his chest. Acapella Bourgeois looks to be a lot more settled now, and I'd imagine we'll probably have to go back up in trip. He boiled over on his last two runs last year but he looks to be a lot more settled this year. I'd imagine we'll probably try a different trip but he's handicapped against Irish horses and he would have won easily but for Polidam being in the race. We might just have had a nice handicap mark with him. He was unexposed but he has Grade 1 form in France and by the end of the season we might be thinking that wasn't a bad performance.

Timothy Doyle quotes on Mallowney (IRE)

I was hoping he'd do that, and it was very similar to the way he won the Dan Moore. Davy thinks he's getting more relaxed. We'll stick to our plan, and he'll probably go to Fairyhouse for the Normans Grove and Punchestown (Champion Chase) after that. He's relaxing earlier in his races and Davy seems to have the key to him. He's four wins from four races around here, and that's his first Grade 2 win.

Gordon Elliott quotes on The Game Changer (IRE)

He's entered at Cheltenham next weekend but I'd say we might have to take a pull now. He's after winning three Graded races now and has turned inside out. He loves it over fences. He'll get a break now until the spring and we'll look at the festivals at the back-end. If you look back to Galway he can still be tricky enough but when he gets there and things work out he's good. He'd have to improve again (to make up into a Grade 1 horse) as he's beating summer horses. We could look at Aintree and Punchestown with him. The Grand Annual is also an option.

John Patrick Ryan quotes on Kilcarry Bridge (IRE)

I couldn’t believe the price he was. He’s (rated) 138 over fences and 117 over hurdles and he’s better over hurdles. He stays three miles all day and won his point-to-point first time out, so distance is no problem. He was good. It’s a nice prize and hopefully the handicapper won’t be too hard on him.

Trainer Quotes

Denis W Cullen quotes on Dysios (IRE)

I'm delighted with him. It was his first time over two-and-a-half so it was a bit of a fact finding mission,. It opens up more opportunities for us over fences as well. This year he's been in particularly good form with himself and he's been training very well. He's 119 over hurdles and ran a lovely race in Listowel the last day. Kieron (winning owner Kieron Gammell) is originally from Greystones so hopefully we can get back to Leopardstown. He's won there twice already and has been second this year so that's his Gold Cup. If we can get back there at Christmas in good shape it will be the icing on the cake. We'll do a bit of pot hunting with him. He has a bit of age on his side now. We stripped a bit of weight off him which is better for him as well. We'll mix it now. I was happier to go back hurdling this year after chasing. Sometimes if you mix it too much in their first season they are going down to hurdles and jumping them too big and deliberate. I wanted to get a season chasing before I went back mixing it over hurdles. I said I'd give him the season chasing and then we could mix and match. He could pop up in a couple of those conditions races. He's a big strong horse but I wouldn't like to be giving away a lot of weight in handicaps. All his best form has been on soft or heavy ground so he handles that ground. I'm delighted - it's not easy to get winners.

Gavin Patrick Cromwell quotes on Elusive Ivy (IRE)

It will be more of the same with her. I was a bit concerned about staying the two and a half miles but she won a bumper at Thurles on heavy ground,. Breen rides with a lot of confidence for a lad that doesn't get that many rides.
