Actress He's progressing with racing and Seamie gave him a lovely ride. He got it nice and easy up in front and he got up to the line well. We put blinkers on him one day and they didn't seem to help but the cheekpieces suit him well.

Athena she was entitled to do that on her last run and I kept it simple, got a lead on her, and she quickened up nicely. It's nice to get a win into her and hopefully she can progress from here.

Lancaster Bomber He's been running at the top level the whole time, all in Group 1's, and obviously we didn't think he'd get a mile-and-a-quarter,. That's the first time we did it with him and let him roll on beautiful ground. He was there for everyone to follow and Seamus gave him a great ride, he went even to halfway and he kept going. He was happy to get a lead but he was going to go level and we were happy to make the running also. He got left there so he Seamus did the right thing. The plan was to come here and then go back to Ascot for the mile race again. I'd imagine that's where he'd go but he'd have an option of the Prince Of Wales now. We thought that the Curragh is a tough place to get a mile-and-a-quarter but he didn't flinch and he kept going. It was a great run from Cliffs Of Moher and we were delighted with him. He relaxed well and came there but just couldn't get past the other horse. We were very happy with his run, it was a very solid run. They found themselves and little bit back off of him (Lancaster Bomber) but he just kept going in front and didn't surrender. His form is very solid and his last run in the Lockinge was a very good run. We were thinking of coming here and going to the Prince Of Wales with Cliffs Of Moher so we'll see now and obviously Idaho goes next week to the Coronation. Some of those horses are still progressing and I'd say he progressed again. He's rated 116. It's a high rating and he's still not finished with maybe.

Merchant Navy You'd be delighted with him obviously. We felt he was just ready to come and the whole reason for running him was to see before we went to Ascot. We felt that he was at a racecourse gallop stage. The lads in Australia said he was a very good horse so we just took it totally on trust. He did five little canters, that's all he did. Ryan was very happy with him. The plan is to go to Ascot for the six furlong race and I think he has to go after that. I think he's only here for Ascot and then gone after that, whatever commitments he has. I thought there would be a lot of improvement in him. I was just hoping for a nice run today, that's all, so it's all a plus. He wasn't stopping today but he's obviously not short of speed either. He made a good bit of ground up from halfway and Ryan was riding him that way because we were afraid he would get tired.

Just Wonderful I'm delighted with her. Ours have to be good to win first time. We never really looked at her until last week. We dropped her down the other morning, in her piece of work, and she took off. She worked like a very exceptional filly but she was just ready to come here. Obviously we've been seeing that ours have been very green first time and making a lot of improvement from their first to their second runs. She's obviously natural to do that. You can never be sure first time what way they are going to be but Ryan was very happy with her. We'll probably look at (Royal) Ascot with her. She'll probably have to go there off the one run, if she goes, and the race you'd be thinking about is the Albany. Ryan won on the dam (Wading) in Newmarket and he still remembers her very well. She's a very well-bred filly.
