Capri I was very impressed with all three colts. They went a nice pace and came up the middle so they had to learn,. Capri is a nice moving horse and should prefer better ground. All three should definitely get a mile and a quarter, and if they are good over that they should get a mile and a half. They are all bred for it. Ryan was very happy. He kept quickening and was surprised they came with him. Next week could be a bit quick for them to run again but we certainly will look at the Racing Post for all three. You learn the same as we do when we run them against each other. Sometimes we get surprised and sometimes not.

Alice Springs It was a bit of a disaster in France. She went and it was shifty, patchy ground in Deauville,. Ryan knew she wasn't going to be involved so he just minded her. She's a very good filly. You saw what she did in the Falmouth as well. She has a lot of speed. She quickened up very well. She's very pacey. There is a chance she could go to the Queen Elizabeth. She might get further someday but she has a lot of speed. She's made for the Breeders Cup on fast ground. We'll look at the Breeders Cup mile or something like that. She was a little unlucky in the Breeders Cup last year. She's hardy and she could do both but it depends on what the ground is like at Ascot.
