Appreciate It He surprised me and impressed me. I was wondering if he was a two and a half miles horse or a two-mile horse. I know he can easily do it over two and a half but to come back to two miles and put in a performance like that in a Grade 1 was impressive.

Sir Gerhard It's been a great couple of days with eight winners here and a winner in Wetherby too. A few got beaten and a few won and that's the way it is, but I'm very happy with the way it went.

Myladyrose She's a brilliant little mare and tough out. It's taken quite a bit to get her here but she's finally strengthened up and we've had a lot of help from a lot of people. We had a massive scare four out and I didn't think Liam was going to stay on. Fair play to him he gave her a perfect ride and it all went well in the end.

Dime A Dozen She's very consistent, she's never been out of the first three and that's her sixth win. Good ground is a big thing for her. On her last two runs over fences the ground got soft both days. Both times I told him to ride her as well as you can but don't kill her. She's qualified for the Red Mills race at Punchestown worth €75,000 in two or three weeks time, or she could go chasing. If I'm not happy, though, she'll go chasing as she's one for next summer. The minute the ground goes she'll be gone. All my horses are the same, the minute the sun stops shining I'm afraid I'll stop shining!

Casamari Abbey He deserved to win as he has been running consistently enough. He used to get very upset going racing whereas he has settled now. I'm delighted for Richie Condon and for the owners Stephen Murphy (Clare) and Seamus Hennessy (Limerick). Stephen (Murphy) got Cillin Leonard ( jump jockey who started with Fahy) going in England and gave him the chance initially and stuck with him. Both Stephen and Seamus are as loyal, and they'd want to be to have a horse like Casamari Abbey as a lot of other lads would have him gone. We'll look for something similar next and Richie (Condon) has broken his duck in Ireland now. Richie is with me six days a week and doesn't know when to stop working; that's hard to see nowadays and he deserves every ride he gets.

Broomfields Jeremy He had good form and we're delighted to get that. He bumped into a good one here the last day and he was probably a bit unlucky in Roscommon. He's a nice horse going forward. I was a bit afraid with the speed they went down over the first and I was glad to see James (O'Sullivan) taking a pull as they were going a crazy gallop. He's a little bit buzzy and that's why we put the hood on him, especially here with the long walk up from the stables. We'll see what mark he gets now and could also look at a novice. He's not a slow horse, Luke (Dempsey) rode him here the last day and felt he was a horse that could maybe do something on the Flat towards the back end.
