Henry De Bromhead quotes on Avenir D'Une Vie (FR)

we knew on his bumper form that he was a class horse, and he jumped really well. He coped well with that two miles but a step up in trip would not bother him and he obviously loves jumping. I’ll have to speak to Michael and Eddie (O’Leary) before deciding where he goes next.

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.

He was entitled to be there or thereabouts on his County Hurdle run which was probably over an inadequate trip. The ground as well as being soft is probably a bit patchy, and he was on and off (the bridle) but he stayed on well from the last.

Trainer Quotes

Robert Tyner quotes on Spare Brakes (IRE)

He only barely gets two miles but won very nicely and seemed to handle that ground well,. Donie worked for me for a couple of years and in fairness to him he has come a long way. He was a nice obliging lad and good around the yard but fair play to Enda (Bolger, his new employer) he has taken him on the next step. Enda did a lot of work with him and built him up with confidence. He gave him a very patient ride; I told him to take his time and it played into his hands as they went extra fast in front.

It was incredible and an extraordinary ride from Ruby,. I’ve seen horses coming from there before in Leopardstown but when it’s yours you’re doubting it. Jumping the last my heart was in my mouth. Ruby is a genius. He nearly left it too late - but he didn’t. He’s a right old horse. He’s a big horse and chasing will be his game. He’s progressive. He might come back for the Coral.ie Hurdle. JP will probably have about half the field in it!

Trainer Quotes

Mrs John Harrington quotes on Thirsty Work (IRE)

That was a nice stepping stone, and hopefully he can go for another one like this next time. I think he had the measure of the other horse at the last, although he did very little up the hill. He’s very laid back. He’ll make a smashing chaser, and will get further which is great. There is a novice rated hurdle up to 130 coming up which would be ideal for him. We’ll take little steps for the moment. The three-mile novice handicap later on at Fairyhouse could be a race for him.

Conor O'Dwyer quotes on Don't Let Go (IRE)

That's four winners in a row - it's amazing,. The conditions absolutely suited her and it wasn't the strongest contest in the world. She's rated 97 and is entitled to win it but that doesn't always work out as we know. She always pleased me at home but she disappointed the first two days, for whatever reason, and she's maybe just a typical mare and wanted a bit of time. It was a cracking run at Roscommon and she followed it up nicely there now. I'd presume the handicapper can't do a lot as she's entitled to win it. She'll go handicapping now and she's a nice mare to have. She has plenty of size and will jump a fence, she is related to Mighty Man. She's only five and has been on the go a while so we'll speak to Frank (Frank Berry - racing manager for JP McManus) and see what they are thinking but to get that under her belt is fantastic.
