Eziyra She's a wonderful filly to train. She's now won five Group races and been second in two Group Ones, sheer consistency,. We've won this race a lot of times and that's three years running now. This is a very good filly and I'd say she could be the best of them from sheer consistency. I've had it in my mind to go to Canada for the EP Taylor and that would be possibly her next race and then we'll go on for the Breeder's Cup Fillies and Mares with her after that. She used not to be that relaxed and that's why she wears the hood but on the race track all she does is battle. She's a very courageous filly and a very good one. Everything worked out well today with the tactics. The plan was to be handy and if nobody was making it to make the running himself. She's very straight-forward. She's a very genuine, very sound filly and I said if there's a nice gallop sit second or third and if there's no pace make it yourself as you're in the key box, drawn one. It doesn't really matter as when she won the Group 3 at Leopardstown we rode her from last. That was a very good Yorkshire Oaks. She was actually coming back going to the line. She looked for a few strides like she'd win it but they just quickened by her, with the three-year-olds having a weight difference. We'll look forward to Canada with her and then the Breeder's Cup. I'd say this is it this year. She's been a group winning two-year-old, a very good three-year-old and good four-year-old.

Days Without End he's been very consistent and he'll be going to America later in the year, as his owner (Colvin Ryan) is American, and the plan is for him to run over jumps there. We'll look at giving him another run here first and I'll look at a handicap with him. He deserved it as he's tough and consistent. He ran a good race in Galway when he was third and I thought he'd take a bit of beating here today. He did it nicely and I'm delighted as it's my first winner for the owner.

Falcon Eight He is learning how to be a racehorse and is still very immature and is far from the finished article,. We hope he will make into a very nice four year old next year and we've had to be patient with him and it's paying off. He'll have one more run this year in six weeks time. By the way he is bred you'd hope he might end up being something and he hasn't let us down to date. He won't be a St Leger horse this year but it would be lovely if he made into an Irish St Leger horse next year; it's a race dad has a good record in so it would be nice to add to it. We'll take baby steps for now and see where we end up. representing

Third World I was pleased with that and Declan rode him very nicely. We thought if he reproduced his first run at the Curragh he would be good enough to win and sure enough it was,. Galway was a messy race and things didn't pan out but he has put it right today. We'll go to Listowel next for the nursery there. He is a beautifully bred horse and hopefully will improve as time goes on.
