Buckhurst He's very tough and tries his heart out,. I probably committed him a little bit early and he got a little bit lonely in front but when the Harrington horse came to me he found again. I thought I'd get to make the running but Kevin's horse seemed to be keen so he went on and I was happy just to take my horse to his outside and get a lead off him for a bit longer. I was always going to be forward and keep it simple. Once the runner-up came to me my horse found a little bit more, he was probably getting a little bit idle in front.

Brook On Fifth I think Joseph (O'Brien) liked her. It's hard to know how good they are but at the same time when there are that many runners they can't all be useless. She was good. She was still a little bit green when I got there, hanging a little bit both ways, so I think there is a bit of improvement in her but she definitely has talent and I think she's a smart filly. She did it smartly and pricked her ears towards the line. I think you'd have to look at stakes company with her now. Going to those black-type races you will learn more from there, that's definitely the next step.

Latrobe The main reason for coming here was that Lloyd and Nick (Williams) felt that it would be important to get a win under his belt this year and then we could make a plan for the second half of the year. He has options all over the place. He could go to Australia but he has options in America as well, there are places like Japan and there are big races here as well. I'm not sure where exactly he's going to go yet. He seems pretty versatile trip-wise as he's ran well at ten furlongs and also at one-mile-six this year. It was a messy race but he did have the right position. Donnacha said he always felt like he was well in command. You'd be delighted to get his head back in front. He won nicely. He's doing things right now as he's gone completely relaxed. I probably ended up going a bit slow for my own good but it's nice the way he switched off like that and he stays well in the last two furlongs, there is plenty in there. He's a lovely horse and I'm sure there are plenty of options for him.

Waitingfortheday She is improving away all the time and Donnacha gave her a lovely ride and saved all the ground. You can't get there too soon on her but he said he got there sooner than ideal but she is a great filly, she really is,. We'll try and get some black-type with her now; you have an option of a Cambridgeshire with her but she will be mid 90s after today. She was entered in the next race, the Corrib Stakes, but I'm glad we went here.

Downdraft He's a beautiful horse to ride, you just throw the reins at him and he goes along at his own pace. Then when you give him a squeeze he is there for you,. He's an improving horse and I think the step up in trip brought about more improvement. I'll leave it to Joseph (O'Brien), but there is anywhere he can go with him - he can go anywhere, he is tactical and he relaxes, so you would have a load of options with him.
