Gordon Elliott quotes on Robin Des Mana (IRE)

He's got his act together and he's running well,. We might have been a bit of a fortunate winner, as the horse was going well behind us, but jumping is the name of the game. It's great for Brendan Scully who has been with us a long time. It's nice to get another winner for him. We'll just keep him to those two-mile handicap chases.

Adrian Paul Keatley quotes on Drumconnor Lad (IRE)

That was a long time coming but to be fair he was unlucky at Christmas to bump into a very smart horse at Leopardstown,. We discovered in between times that he doesn't want that real soft, heavy winter ground. On a bit of nicer ground there today we've seen a lot better from him. Davy gave him a super ride as well. He's ultra professional and he knows where to have them in front. He'll go to Punchestown now, hopefully if he's alright, for the two-and-a-half handicap on the Saturday. We'll keep him and are in no rush to put him away. He'll have to get a break at some stage but there is plenty of good prize-money to be picked up in the summer. He wants that type of track though, a big galloping track. Over fences is probably when he's going to come into his own.

Trainer Quotes

Denis Gerard Hogan quotes on The Irregular (IRE)

That was brilliant. I was having a bit of a ponder yesterday morning as I was going to run him in Killarney from 5lb wrong in the good handicap hurdle,. I thought there was great money for offer in it, and a handy field, but it is a quality field. The other option was to come here. I wasn't sure the track would suit him but the ground is on the slow side and things are falling apart and not happening fast around here tonight. He'll probably go for the handicap hurdle on the Thursday at Listowel, which I won last year with Jack The Wire. He's a chaser long term and anything he does over hurdles is a bonus. He's actually already ran over a fence, when he fell at Thurles when running well. It's great for Ray (Treacy) who lives in England but his sister is here today. He's a great supporter. That ground is lovely for him. You don't know what way Listowel will be but that's the aim anyway.
