Queen Rabab She is a well-bred filly and that’s the second race she’s after winning. She might go to the sales at the end of the year. Her brother (Blonde Warrior) by Zoffany won a two-year-old maiden the other day for Hugo Palmer and he cost 210,000 as a yearling. She also has a brother that won a Listed race in Australia. The blinkers sparked her up as she doesn’t kill herself.

Tissiak It's been a great evening, and we thought she was probably our best chance. She is a beautiful filly and had two very good runs. She has a fantastic pedigree, and will probably step up to a Stakes race now. She is in the Irish Oaks and we will probably work back from there now. Donnacha said he was going so easy that he thought it was going to turn into a sprint and he put her in gear. All of a sudden she took off on him and he had to stay going. I don't think he's ridden her before so he'll know her now for the next day.

Turret Rocks We'll keep her well entered up and hopefully there are some good days in her still,. She's entered at Royal Ascot and then we have Derby weekend after that where we could have a look at the Pretty Polly. I'd prefer a mile-and-a-half for her though.

Merchant Navy You'd be delighted with him obviously. We felt he was just ready to come and the whole reason for running him was to see before we went to Ascot. We felt that he was at a racecourse gallop stage. The lads in Australia said he was a very good horse so we just took it totally on trust. He did five little canters, that's all he did. Ryan was very happy with him. The plan is to go to Ascot for the six furlong race and I think he has to go after that. I think he's only here for Ascot and then gone after that, whatever commitments he has. I thought there would be a lot of improvement in him. I was just hoping for a nice run today, that's all, so it's all a plus. He wasn't stopping today but he's obviously not short of speed either. He made a good bit of ground up from halfway and Ryan was riding him that way because we were afraid he would get tired.

Emperor Waltz He (Emperor Waltz) seems to love it around here and got his ground. He'll go for another long distance handicap now and will jump a hurdle again in the summer - he didn't like the ground when he ran over hurdles last December. Nelson Road also ran a cracker and our horses are coming into a bit of better form.

Jaega The ground is very testing but she’s a lovely filly and we’ve always liked her a lot. She was very immature last year so I took my time with her. We’ll go for a Stakes race with her next. She stays well, has a lot of class and could be a nice filly going a mile and a half.

Ineffable He travelled way better tonight. The trip was too short last time and he was run off his feet as he wasn't able to go the pace,. We'll find something here for him again, and that will make the drive home a bit easier tonight.
