Trainer Quotes

W M Roper quotes on Play The Part (IRE)

We've always thought quite a lot of him but he disappointed us last time where the ground was tacky. He was brought down in Punchestown so we hadn't much to go on on racecourse performances. I've always been friendly with Rupert Macauley, so I gave his son the ride. It was a little bit of a surprise, but it's a nice surprise. He'll go hurdling now.
