Trainer Quotes

Noel Meade quotes on Road To Respect (IRE)

I'm delighted. We had Disko and himself in this and felt this fella just comes a little bit quicker and the other fella takes a little more work,. I think Disko will go to the north for the JN Wine Chase. It could well be that this fella goes for the second season novice in the north, I don't know and we'll see what happens. He's back well and he done that well. We're not surprised he won, we thought he came on a good bit since last year. He seemed very well and he doesn't take a lot of work, it's just keeping him fresh and keeping him happy. He said he was a bit rusty early on and landed a bit steep and whatever, but when he went he got there real well. He stays. In fairness Eoin (Griffin) said that to me, he couldn't believe we were talking about two-and-a-half. All along he always felt that three miles is his trip. He's matured into a nice horse. That's the softest he's won on I think. We're thrilled. Hopefully he comes sound and he's alright. We can think about where we go after that. Anything is open to him. He's in the big one in the north as well but it might come a bit soon and we have Disko. There is a board meeting every time and decisions are made. In fairness Mike and Eddie do sort of row in with you and go with what you say. It's not all one-way traffic or anything like that. There are other horses to be considered. I know with Mike the one thing he always seems to do is run in Grade Ones so if we go in a good race there will be no problem with him.

Trainer Quotes

W P Mullins quotes on Ballycasey (IRE)

He’s found his mojo again. We were trying to make a stayer out of him but he obviously enjoys going a shorter trip and using his jumping. He’s got his confidence back. I wish the Topham was another fortnight or three weeks away. It was either there or here and we chose here. Hopefully he will run in Punchestown and he will probably have to go for the Grade 1 (Boylesports Champion Chase). He was third in the Galway Plate last year, and that’s a possible target again this year. He might not be as well in this year as last year!

Mrs John Harrington quotes on Sandymount Duke (IRE)

I thought a mile and seven (furlongs) might be a bit short for him, and the only way to ride him is to bowl along. I think he got such a fright coming out of the stalls that it took a little while to get in front but she said he was super all the way. He loves that ground and bounces off it. It's the Galway Plate now and we'll see what happens. He won't mind if the ground is a bit slower. He's won ten races now. A Flat race, bumper, hurdles and chases. He's become a part of the furniture. I think Ronnie (Wood, owner) is going to come to Galway. I was talking to him there (by phone) and he's thrilled.

Trainer Quotes

Henry De Bromhead quotes on Sub Lieutenant (IRE)

he was impressive in Limerick (in October) but this was a different class of race. I'm delighted to see him do something similar. He's funny, he's a character and is just a brilliant jumper - when he sees a fence he just wants to go and jump it. David gave him a brilliant ride. They were hard at it from a long way and he was up there the whole way. I'd like to speak to the lads and see where he goes next - being a negative fellow I picked out the winners of two conditions chase in Gowran, just in case, at the end of the month but thankfully he's not eligible for that anymore!. The John Durkan Chase would be one but I'll speak to the lads and he was entered in the King George but we'll see as he's only a second season novice.
