Red Gerry He was entitled to that and it has just taken him a while to learn to jump quicker. He’s been a bit slicker every time he’s run, and I suppose the trainer was wrong to run him over two and a half in Down Royal.

Jerandme It's been a good race for us, I think that's the fourth time I've won it. He's very genuine, what you see is what you get. He never lets us down no matter what we run him in. He does stay very well and maybe next year he might be a contender for that two and a half mile race at (Royal) Ascot. He likes good-ish ground, so we took a chance today that it would be alright. The trip today was a bit of a help. Colin Keane is without doubt one of the nicest young lads to have ever come into racing not just as a jockey but as a man. He said to me afterwards that he had a look at the last day I rode him, last night, and said 'I should have held onto him a bit longer' and today he was able to sit and that just made the difference - he was able to pick up. It just shows you how good he is. You'd have to think about that (the Irish Cesarewitch) as well, it would be the next step.

Jeff Kidder He's been knocking on the door but we needed the jockey. Hopefully he'll have a chance again in a handicap somewhere if he (the handicapper) doesn’t bump him up too much. He seems to stay well and handles that ground but he goes on good ground too. He'll be going back jumping as well.

Layfayette I didn’t think he was going to win at any stage. I don’t know whether that was the ground or whether he’s gone lazy, but I suppose when he races like that it helps him to see out the trip.
