Trainer Quotes

Gordon Elliott quotes on Pallasator (GB)

John Shortt was a great pal of mine, a great fella and he was a great horseman as well. Thanks to Gordon Elliott and thanks to Sheikh Fahad for letting me ride him. We came up with the plan a couple of weeks ago. As Gordon said, it put a little bit of buzz to the race with a real good horse in it. I know he won well but at least he ran in it. He gave me a terrific ride. He was the class horse in the race if he didn't misbehave. To be fair, he's behaved with us the whole time. Sir Mark Prescott has done all the hard work with him. Maybe it's just the change of scenery that has helped him. He'll be hurdling in a couple of weeks' time and he jumps very well. He has done loads to schooling. He travelled away like he had a bit of spark in him and you'd be delighted with him.

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.
