Matthew J Smith quotes on Bective Cave (IRE)

He came out of the race well at Clonmel, and we let him take his chance. He's done it well again there, and that trip is ideal. He's entered at Downpatrick on Saturday. I don't know if he'll go there but we'll see how he is after this.

Gordon Elliott quotes on De Plotting Shed (IRE)

He’ll keep to hurdles for this season and we can look at anything from two and a half miles up to three miles. He’s improving and is a horse that should win plenty of races.

Trainer Quotes

Mrs John Harrington quotes on Light That (IRE)

Mum said she's staying at home to do the mowing more often!,. He did that well and we always thought he had a nice flat rating. Has very good form over hurdles too and will kick on now for the Punchestown festival. He'll jump a fence no problem to him and hopefully if he gets higher, could go for the amateur handicap at Galway!. Colm got down to a low weight to ride him and is a great asset to the yard. The whole team at home do a great job and Colm rides out in Ballydoyle every morning but comes up some days to ride late work in the afternoon. Our new gallop is fantastic and is a serious asset to the yard - it means we don't have to go to the Curragh to work horses now and it's great.

Trainer Quotes

W P Mullins quotes on Saturnas (FR)

He did it the hard way. We knew there was going to be a good pace. We weren’t afraid to make it but anyway we weren’t allowed. He jumped and galloped and he has lots of stamina. You can depend on his jumping and that’s what keeps him in the race. Stamina then won it for him. He'll probably come back here for the Deloitte. Ruby’s (Riven Light) just wasn’t jumping behind but I think that horse ran a cracker and if we can get his jumping right he could be a force. It was good for my owner (Nick Peacock). I think he is just back from two or three months holidays. I thought he maybe just met Airlie Beach on a good day in Fairyhouse. Certainly today I felt he travelled a lot better the whole way. It’s also fantastic for Paul to get a Grade One winner. It’s not often Ruby picks the wrong one. I’m delighted for Paul.
