Angel's Amy We think a lot of her and she has never been out of the first two. We'll probably go for either the Knockaire or Navigation Stakes now. She is on the up, is bred by her owner Alfred Sweetnam and I think he will have at least a placed black-type filly in the making to go to stud with anyway. I was a bit worried the ground might be tacky but she handled that today and Gary (Carroll) said she had a fifth leg on it. She is a filly to look forward to afterwards.

Pulse Of Shanghai It was great. Five furlongs wouldn't be his trip, he would be a six or seven furlong horse so he did well to do as well as he did,. We were expecting a good run, he ran great last week (in the Curragh) on his first run back for a long time. He was going to improve a bit from last week and that's what he did. If he's in good form he'll be out again soon, he will probably go back up in trip now. Today was the day!

Angel's Amy We'd been waiting for that and she won as she should. She's a nice filly, we were worried about the ground but she seems to handle it and seven to a mile is her trip,. She's owned/bred by Alfred (Sweetnam) and I think she might go forward after that. I don't know how good that maiden was but she's been second three times, we thought we were a bit unlucky, but she's done it today and you have to win your maiden now at three to go to stud. We're happy with her.

Lady Jane Wilde I liked this filly all along. She’s been working with all of our handicappers and doing it very easy. She has a lot of speed so I told Niall to take his time because I wasn’t sure if she would stay the seven but she seemed to stay it out well. Where we go from here I’m not sure. She has no entries. We were coming here to have a good experience and hopefully to be in the shake-up. Niall said she handled the ground well. I don’t normally have two-year-olds and Miss Jabeam is my only previous two-year-old maiden winner.

Aurora Moon I'm delighted and we always thought she was a nice filly with plenty of scope. We didn't run her as a two year old because she has so much scope, she is 16.2hh. She completely fluffed her lines at Leopardstown and was very green and at Gowran she did a little bit too much with Leigh early and got a little tired. It has obviously left her just right and the ground was no issue and I'd say she is versatile in that regard. A mile would be no problem to her and is a nice filly and we'll see what the handicapper does and go from there.
