Trainer Quotes

Gordon Elliott quotes on Authorizo (FR)

He's a nice horse. He didn't show us a whole lot at home but he was good there. Jack said he was a bit keen early but the further he went the better he was. He put it to bed well and Jack was impressed with him. We're not sure where we'll go now but he'll be entered in all the races at Cheltenham and we'll see what happens.

Trainer Quotes

Gordon Elliott quotes on Coeur Sublime (IRE)

We think he is a nice horse. He'll come on a tonne from the run, you could see he was behind the bridle the whole way and kept picking up. We think he could be okay. He hasn't been on grass at all. He'll go on anything if its not the two extremes - bottomless heavy or too quick. Bryan (Cooper) says it is beautiful ground there. You can't stress enough that this is the first time the horses are getting on grass so I thought it was a good performance. Fairyhouse looks the obvious place to go with him. Chris (Jones) deserves every bit of luck he gets as he invests a lot into the game. He's a big owner.

Trainer Quotes

Joseph Patrick O'Brien quotes on Gardens Of Babylon (IRE)

He did well to win because it was only his third run ever and I thought he'd probably come on a bit from it,. It was nice to see him go and do that. He jumped well. They went slow and got racing in front of him but he went and got them in fairness to him. There is a winners race in Fairyhouse and you also have the graded race at Leopardstown. We'll see. I thought he went to the line well. He hadn't run for a long time and he'd be entitled to come on for it. He had a few problems I think but he has ability.

Trainer Quotes

Joseph Patrick O'Brien quotes on Sir Erec (IRE)

He was obviously a decent horse on the Flat and he jumped well. His jumping will come on a nice bit for that. I was a bit nervous before the race because there was a really strong word for the second. I'm delighted to see him do that and he was tough from the back of the last when he had to be. Every horse in the race would have done loads of jumping but there were four or five fallers. You can only do as much as you can at home and then they have to go and run. He had always schooled nicely so it's nice to see him go and win. The ground has been so good for so long that maybe a lot of horses didn't do as much schooling as they would have other years. He'll probably come back here next as that makes sense. He stays well and he'll have to come on from that.

Trainer Quotes

W P Mullins quotes on French Made (FR)

She was getting a lot of weight off a mare who had more experience than her and the further she was going the better she was going,. She wasn't impressing me coming down the hill as I thought she was coming off the bridle and Paul said the same. We'll probably go up in trip but she could be alright at this trip if we ever get winter ground. We've had soft ground at Tramore, Cork and at Limerick. She will progress in mares' novice races and she will probably get a Triumph entry but she will want to be a lot sharper. She is owned by Sean McManus and his daughter Julie, from Drogheda who couldn't be here but take a big interest.
