Trainer Quotes

W P Mullins quotes on Allaho (FR)

He is a nice horse who disappointed me hugely in a bumper at Christmas, compared to the work he had been doing at home. The form did work out though and he was green at Christmas which was the problem. We saw it again today as he was very green about getting going to win his race. He had been very free throughout the race so to come off a pace like that pulling as hard as he did and pick up, I was very impressed with him. He looks a real chaser in the making and we ran him in that race to see where to go at Cheltenham. Having gone a mile in that race, I thought if he won that the Ballymore could be the race for him because he was very free. He's in that and the Albert Bartlett and he'll go straight to Cheltenham now. Maybe with that race out of his system he might settle better the next day.

Trainer Quotes

Noel Meade quotes on Cap York (FR)

I’d say he’ll probably travel (to Cheltenham) now because he stays and stays. He wants four miles!. He ran at Limerick over Christmas and he was caught on the (inside) fence and they bunched up and he couldn’t get going again. He wasn’t beaten far in that good novice. We said we’d make plenty of use of him, and softer ground would suit him better. Hopefully he’s alright after that. If he gets in I’m pretty certain he’ll run in the Pertemps.

Trainer Quotes

Gordon Elliott quotes on Commander Of Fleet (IRE)

He’s a nice horse and a big thanks goes to Pat Doyle who trained him to win a point-to-point. Michael and Eddie said if he’s good enough to take to the Land Rover then take him. I only have him from the week after he won his point-to-point. I haven’t galloped him, just cantered him away. Pat did all the hard work with him. He’ll be a nice horse with a summer’s grass, and it’s a good result to get the 1-2-3.

Trainer Quotes

J P Dempsey quotes on Derrinross (IRE)

He did it the hard way and he didn't jump as well today but Luke said he was looking around in front,. He came out of his race well the last day and we were very happy with him. I was sort of thinking the others underperformed at Cork and he obviously had to step up and he was also giving away weight. We might have to look at bigger things now and while we mightn't get a wet spring, if he gets soft ground he could run at the Dublin Racing Festival. I'd be fond of going to Cheltenham, I've never been there, and if he got soft ground he'll run in the Albert Bartlett. I think he'll be better with a stronger gallop. He's had plenty of issues and thankfully now he has bounced out and hopefully tomorrow he'll be the same. We've had a great Christmas.

He was unlucky the last day when he looked like he had the race in the bag when he fell at the last (in Bellewstown). We won't do too much more with him this year and we'll find a little hurdle race next and go chasing next year. He is a big, good-looking horse that just needs plenty of time. He'll go on any ground types to be honest.

W P Mullins quotes on Dorrells Pierji (FR)

I know he was disappointing the last day but he put it right today. He jumped well and is still learning and could be on an upward curve. He won nicely on soft ground at Listowel and maybe it was a bit soon for him at Tipperary after Listowel but he has come back here on a nice galloping track and has put it right; winning will bring him on confidence-wise. It's good for the owners and good for me to ride a winner for Willie and Ruby (Walsh) and Paul (Townend) were a great help. I rode a winner for Willie but it's been so long now that I can't remember it!

Noel Meade quotes on First Approach (IRE)

He was never going like a horse that was going to win at any stage of the race and he hung the whole way. I don't know why but there is some little thing annoying him, whatever it is. We thought after Naas we sorted it out because he didn't really travel, but we obviously didn't. I know she (Rachael Blackmore on Cool Saint) might have beat him but he wasn't doing a stroke so who knows. He was idling the whole way and it is very tight today but he won and they all count. We think he is a very nice horse but what I'm going to do with him, I don't know. He is more a chaser than a hurdler and maybe he'd like easier ground too.
