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.

Duhallow Noelie We're happy enough that he's won a race. We put in plenty of mileage with him, over and back to the north of England and down to Lingfield the last day,. He has just turned a corner and strengthened up in the last month or six weeks. He started off on a very high mark. The best he finished in a maiden was seventh but he started off on a mark of 70. The filly that beat me in the last (Beau Warrior) finished sixth in a maiden and started off with 55!. Hopefully the handicapper won't be too hard on him and we'll get another shot at one of them. He just got there. My hand was forced that I had to use him as a pacemaker at home for working a couple of horses and he seemed to be loving it when we let him bowl along in front in his work. Ben rode him up here and led the horse that ran in the last race (Major Reward). He came in and said he loved it in front.
