Flower Garland It's nice to get it out of the way (first winner). She did it well,. She was entitled to probably win off her mark but I didn't think she'd win that well. It's nice to get it. She gets the mile well and I think she'll probably stay a mile-and-a-quarter as well. She had plenty of experience and was very fit. I have a few nice horses and it's nice to get the first one out of the way. I've 35 in at the moment. We have a few nice well-bred two-year-olds, the likes of Fancy Blue and a few three-year-olds that haven't run. Hopefully there are a few decent horses there.

Distant Vista Michael Ryan and his team are delighted, they bred him, and I'm delighted to train a winner for them. The visor seemed to help him and Shane Kelly was happy with him the last time he rode him and said he handled the surface really well. We put the visors on him during the week and it seemed to put a bit of life into him. He's a horse that we liked all along and I'm glad he's got his head in front now. He's coming along all the time. Colin said he's still a bit lazy in behind but when he got into daylight and he gave him a backhander, with the visor, he quickened up well. I hope we can find another race for him here as I think he's a horse that wants the fast surface.
