Quotes on Awayinthewest (IRE)

I was a bit worried as she got a little knock behind at Listowel as she was well butchered on the back leg. I was afraid it might come against her. I took a chance and really freshened her, I barely had her out of her stable. She arrived today in really great form and today proves how consistent she is. There were a small numbers in the race and you have to go for those type of races. Any day you beat three of Willie's (Mullins) is not a bad day I suppose!. I'm going to go for that mares' novice hurdle (Grade 3) in Down Royal in November and then aim her back for the mares' novice hurdle at Cheltenham in March, where her experience will help. That's a little plan at the moment.

Quotes on Jaime Sommers (IRE)

It was a bit of a surprise. She had been disappointing so far this season but she takes a good few runs to get fit. Ruth rode the race to perfection. She kept out of the chopped-up ground as the other two took on each other. Fair play to Ruth, she rode a fantastic race. We tried the cheekpieces on her the last time and they seemed to have improved her and this was her second time to wear them. It's great to win with her on the Flat as she ran out of options over hurdles and fences. She was badly handicapped, she was just caught. She had her first run on the Flat at the Curragh but she didn't like the stalls, so the flag start here was ideal for her, this race was really ideal for her. She loves Tramore and was placed the other two times she ran here. It wasn't a total surprise as the track suited and the ground dried up a bit. We definitely won't go over fences with her again. I wouldn't risk her as she is the only filly I have out of Solerina. She is entered on Saturday in a maiden but is not eligible now. I'd like to see what the handicapper gives her and maybe go for something at the end of the season on the Flat. Her mother won three Flat races so it's great that she has now as well. She has now won over fences, hurdles and on the level. Solerina is twenty-two now and is in-foal to Walk In The Park. I think she has nine foals so far and she is great form.

Quotes on Great White Shark (FR)

Fantastic for Jody. I think it was her first ride in the race. Some guys wait all their lives and never ride the winner of it, but Jody looked like an old hand, coming from off the pace. I just said to her ‘see how you break. If you don’t break well, wait and wait and come wide, and keep out of trouble’. And that’s what she did. Once the mare started to pass one or two horses, she found that she was liking it, and the two of them just took off. Jody said she couldn’t believe how well she was travelling in the dip and once she passed one or two the mare just took off. I had this race in mind for her all along. She’d had a hurdle career and I thought this mare might improve on the flat. I said to Malcolm Denmark (owner) 'we’ll go to Galway, there’s a nice race there'. But as things turned out, I think she would have been the outsider of our ones, but with Jody’s 7lb claim and her first run back on the flat after her little break I thought anything could happen. That race is a bit like the Grand National. Look at our other horse, Mr Adjudicator, he got no breaks whatsoever. He had a slow break, got caught on the rails, never got out, and was a fast-finishing fourth. Royal Illusion probably ran a bit too free at the start and Legal Spin didn’t look like he came up the hill.

Quotes on Sweet Sting (IRE)

we were close to giving up with her after her last run. It was only a last-thought to run her in this today as she was also entered in the bumper. it was a surprise and a bigger one than yesterday (with stablemate Jaime Sommers also winning at 25/1). We always liked her but she was fierce disappointing in all three of her bumpers but Brian (Hayes) said a combination of fitness, the hurdles and the extra half-mile made the difference as she wasn't a bumper mare. She is very well bred out of Sweet Kiln and Brian won on Sweet Kiln and this filly's sister Aunt Alice. Sweet Kiln's first three runners have all won and while she is retired, she has a Leading Light three year old and a Getaway yearling on the ground. Sweet Kiln herself won here in an amateur race under Brian and Sweet Sting is only four but should improve with age.
