Claim The Lady I'm delighted to get his head in front. He's been knocking on the door and his maiden form when third to Anthony Van Dyck last year, and this year behind Buckhurst, was good. Now that he's got there I think he'll come on from that. He seems to have got a lot stronger in the last month which has helped him a lot.

Dame Kyteler We always liked her last year but we had to get her wind done and she took ages to get back after it. It is great to get her head in front today. That ground was far too quick for her and she'll be a much better filly on slower ground.

Olay Power On her work at home, she wasn't a superstar, but she worked okay. She ran like a drain the last couple of times though and I don't know why,. If she repeated her homework we thought we'd be very close given where we were drawn. Thankfully it worked out. She's out of a half-sister to the dam of Sole Power. She's no Sole Power but it's nice to have something from the family still to go. There are only a handful of these three-year-old 0-65s and you'd be looking for something similar. I liked the way she travelled into the race but she gave me palpitations in the last 100 yards where she looked to run out of petrol or pull herself up for whatever reason.

Kasbah he’s been a bit frustrating but he ran well in Navan the last day and is owned by the Dooley brothers and our yard sponsor Bart O’Sullivan. It’s our first winner for them. I know we had to drop him back to a claimer to win but he’s won plenty of money all winter, and if we don’t lose him he’ll probably go to the likes of Chester as the lads are local to there and it would suit them. He’s a fun horse and if he’s claimed, he’s claimed. That fast six is probably his trip. He’s gone seven by dropping in and we haven’t chanced a mile yet. He’s even run well over five here. He’s a hold up horse and sometimes he doesn’t find a whole pile but tonight he did.

Atlas he's a tricky old horse and his stats show that. I was a little bit worried about the ground going out as the rain is getting into it a bit. He's a top of the ground horse but he did it well at the finish. He's a very capable horse but he just needs things to fall right. He usually needs a couple of horses in front of him to falter. Today they didn't stop but he was just on song and everything happened right.
