Baladiya It was quite a nice performance. She battled well and got a good ride from Chris. We'll look for a handicap with her. She's been a consistent filly. A stiff six to seven is what she wants.

Tarnawa It was a good performance by her. I thought she'd be hard to beat today,. She's a tough, genuine and stays well. We'll see how she comes out of the race before making a decision about where she goes next. Epsom may be a possibility. The second is a very good filly and it was a good classic trial but we'll just see how she comes out of the race before making any decision where she goes. It's a lovely race to win. Blue Wind was a very special filly. She did Oaks double for me, she was very impressive when she won the Epsom Oaks and then came back and won at the Curragh for us as well.

Brogue he is a nice, raw horse and has plenty to learn. He is a beautifully bred colt and hopefully there will be plenty improvement to come. Oisin rode him very nicely and we'll look for a winners' of one next.

Shelir He did it very nicely and is still a horse with plenty to learn about racing. I was always confident over the last furlong that he was going to get there. He'll obviously appreciate a mile which he won over in Navan, and the logical thing is to come back here later this month for the Irish 2,000 Guineas. He was a little bit keen in the early part of the race and then settled. It's just his second start, and most of the other horses had a lot more experience than he had. He's a work in progress and I think there is a nice bit more to come from this horse. I purposely ran him over seven today just to see would he have the pace for a Guineas, and you saw there that he does and is entitled to run in the Irish Guineas and represent us well. He could well be a mile and a quarter horse in time.

Manqoosh He's a lovely big horse and he's one of the biggest three-year-olds we have. I thought he'd run a very nice race. He's a big horse and we'll take our time with him during the year. He'd love that ground, just on the slow side of good is perfect for him. We'll see how the summer goes. He's 16-2 and over 500 kilos so he's a horse that we'll take our time with during the year. I see him as a lovely horse for the second part of the year. The plan was to ride him exactly as he rode him. I'd say he'll get a mile-and-a-quarter with the way he was getting to the line there nicely. He'll always want a nice ease in the ground. When he fills into that big frame of his I'd say he'll be a lovely horse in the autumn.

Hasanabad He did what you'd expect and he'll probably go for a winners of one next. There's one over 1m 6f at Killarney in a couple of weeks time and he'll probably run there. The second horse was very well fancied too and the first two drew clear. I was very pleased with him and he is progressive.
