Trainer Quotes

J R Barry quotes on Abraham (IRE)

He unseated Sean (Flanagan) at Gowran so I was hoping he'd get down over the first couple today! . At home he jumps well but he was wide at Gowran when we said we'd give him a little light and he ducked left and right but Sean said he was good today. I'm delighted with that and he'll come on a tonne from it as he is still a big baby. He'll run on the flat at Galway next - in the race he was beaten a short-head in last year, and will then mix it for the rest of the summer.

Trainer Quotes

Ms Margaret Mullins quotes on Get Smart (FR)

I'm delighted with that and he is improving the whole time. He might be a horse for some of those lower novices. How good a race it was, I don't know but he is not doing anything wrong and is improving away. He is owned by an Italian man Daniel Furini who has mares with George Williams and he asked me would I take him.

Trainer Quotes

Gordon Elliott quotes on Fridaynightlights (IRE)

He won well in Fairyhouse the other day but I'd say the track didn't suit him great today,. I had it in my head after he won that he might go to Punchestown but when I looked at the race he won't get into it so I decided to declare him here. He might go to Punchestown now for the Opportunity Hurdle. Anthony gave him a good ride. I'd say the better track will suit him better. He was a little bit on the back-foot the whole way but this place is a bit like that. Fair play to the owners for letting me run. I probably should have left him but we're under pressure with the prize-money.

Trainer Quotes

Eoin Doyle quotes on Jefferson Davis (IRE)

He got murdered at the start in Kilbeggan the other night. He never got into it but still finished fourth. He's only a four-year-old but seems to stay the 2m 3f well. He wouldn't want it any quicker than tonight. He might go for a four-year-old novice hurdle somewhere over the summer, and he could go back on the flat over a trip. My wife Gemma owns him so it will keep her happy!

Denis Gerard Hogan quotes on California Soul (IRE)

I missed the start and got further back than I wanted to be, but in hindsight it worked out. He wears the blinkers and needed to get a toe (lead) everywhere and just got there in time.
