Trainer Quotes

Thomas Mullins quotes on Oscar Knight (IRE)

He won well in Galway and had every chance in Punchestown when he nearly fell after jumping the fence well. Mark Walsh said he slipped on the next stride after the fence. I thought he would have run on after the last fence in Punchestown after making that mistake and when he didn’t I was saying is he gone out of form’. He was working well at home so we said we’d take a chance. There was no point going for a 50,000 race with a penalty so we said we’d come here instead of Punchestown tomorrow. I don’t know if that will get him into the Paddy Power, or even if JP or Frank want to go for it, but he’s in the race anyway so it’s there and I’ll leave it to the owner. If they want me to run I’ll run. I’m very happy with today. He jumped well enough bar a few down the far side. He has his own way of doing it and we do work on his back from time to time.

Trainer Quotes

R A Cotter quotes on Ronava (IRE)

He did it well. We've always said he was a two-mile horse but the extra half mile made a difference today and it opens up a lot more options,. From day one when Johnny won on him and then Adrian (Heskin) they said stick a fence in front of him. He jumped like a stag. He likes quicker ground as long as it's safe with a little cut. He's won at Galway before so we'll look for a little handicap there.

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.

Charles O'Brien quotes on Russian Roulette (IRE)

He is still only a child but last year was clueless! . He is almost 17hh and his run at Gowran the last day was the first time he had ever shown any spark. I was hoping he would improve with the step up in trip and he can step up again and should have no problem staying a mile and six. He just got away with today's ground.

Trainer Quotes

Andrew Slattery quotes on Pumbaa (IRE)

We got him about ten weeks ago and he's a horse with problems. Roger takes a lot of credit for it as he rides him out every day and just lets him off and do his own thing. He works like a real good horse at home, and we are just training him gently and not overdoing him. Roger hugged the rails the whole way, and gave him a great ride. The lads that own him (Rafiki Syndicate) are neighbours of mine. He loved the ground. He won a bumper in Limerick at Christmas a couple of years ago, and when you go around there you go anywhere.

Trainer Quotes

Liam P Cusack quotes on Bog War (IRE)

It's great that he followed up. I was a little worried coming back after a week as he normally gets a bit of time. The fact that he didn't have a hard race helped. He was eating well and seemed in good shape. It was worth chancing as it was a good pot. He's game out and is a progressive horse. He's unlucky not to have won four in a row and seems to be getting stronger all the time. He was 24 in the ballot and just scraped in. He wouldn't have got in without the penalty. David's claim was a huge advantage and he knows the horse. We'll have to think about a nice handicap hurdle now. He's rated 64 on the Flat and I wouldn't rule that out but he certainly won't run for a while and we'll take it easy now. We'll think about Galway and there is a little race at Leopardstown in the New Year which he might sneak into the bottom of!

Noel Meade quotes on Benemeade (IRE)

He was unlucky last time when he slipped up. Paul had slipped in the previous race on Blue Cannon and I said to him to let this lad drift off the bend. When he slipped up [at Navan last Saturday] I said to him what happened to the drifting and he said if he'd drifted any further he would have ended up in the hedge!. He jumps well. He looked around at the last and nearly threw it away. He's a nice horse but doesn't really like heavy ground.

he’s tough and Ambrose knows him well and gave him a super ride. He deserved that.

I was a bit worried coming here as he worked very badly four days ago - it was probably his worst piece of work ever. I was humming and hawing about coming but his bloods were right so I thought we might as well come. We dropped him out today as he wasn't getting home but he seemed to like it and he got a great ride. He's in the Northfields at the Curragh next weekend and if he gets in he'll go.

Trainer Quotes

Stephen Ryan quotes on Rolling Rocket (IRE)

I was a bit nervous that the ground might be too heavy but he seemed to handle it alright. He's been in great order since Naas, and has been absolutely hopping off the ground. If he's okay he may go to Naas on Sunday.
