W P Mullins quotes on Al Boum Photo (FR)

It looks a strong race — more like a Grade Two than a Listed race — but I suppose the ground is soft in Tramore, which suits these staying chasers. We run the three of them, as we’re getting into 2019 and we need to get these horses out. Al Boum Photo would probably be the pick of them on last season’s form. He’s a Grade One winner and we hope he could be a Gold Cup horse. The worry would be our horses that ran over Christmas that hadn’t had a run this season looked like they needed it. Our three Grade One winners in Leopardstown — Aramon, Kemboy and Sharjah — had all had a run. We want to see Total Recall jumping well as his jumping let him down at the end of last season. A good, clear round would be good for him. Invitation Only needs to improve.

Trainer Quotes

A J Martin quotes on Anibale Fly (FR)

It couldn't have worked out better, with our own man riding him and he gave him an excellent ride. He jumped from fence to fence. I was just hoping he wouldn't get there too early and luckily enough he didn't,. He wants a proper trip. He's an old fashioned staying horse and he jumped and galloped. This is what you get up everyday for, to have days like this. It doesn't happen too often but when it does it's great. Bad old mornings, horses going bad, things going bad and the job going bad. When you get a boost it rejuvenates the whole lot. He's always been a very good horse but just luck didn't go his way. He was favourite for the Feltham last year, the race Might Bite ran in. I don't know what happened then whether it was ground or trip or whatever. In the race today he jumped out and travelled and was always in there with a good squeak. I was always happy watching it. There was no stage where I was saying 'we're in trouble', fortunately enough, and it all went right. He got there in plenty of time and the further he was going the better, you couldn't be happier with him. He won well for a competitive handicap. He's after going through (the handicap) roof there now and could be anything. It's days like today that you want. That helps you get to the point-to-point and Clonmels of this world. It's day like today that make it all worthwhile.

Trainer Quotes

W P Mullins quotes on Bellshill (IRE)

Ruby was fantastic. We didn't want a slow pace and he didn't think there was much pace in the race so he elected to make it. Then when Sean went by him Ruby was happy to sit there. What I really liked about the horse was that every time Ruby wanted a jump he took two lengths out of the one in front. He knew that he had that in hand and he was very confident and cool over the last three fences, I thought. He used the other horse as a lead. I thought he might pull out more after the last but he pulled out enough. A lot of horses didn't turn up but still the quality horses were here and they served up a fantastic race. We might have a few nice horses to go to Cheltenham with this year. He's always promised to be this good. Now he's won his Irish Gold Cup and hopefully we'll follow on, maybe, next month. He was very good at Christmas but he needed it. Road To Respect was unlucky at Christmas but we needed it.

W P Mullins quotes on Invitation Only (IRE)

Invitation Only has the right sort of profile for the race in that he’s a second-season novice and hopefully open to improvement. He has plenty of weight (11st 6lb) and off a mark of 152 it’s not going to be easy, but hopefully he has a good chance. Some Neck won his beginners’ chase here and Richie Deegan takes 5lb off his back. Richie is very good value for his claim and won a Grade One for us in last season’s Punchestown Champion Bumper. The worry with Some Neck is he can race a bit lazily, so I just hope he doesn’t end up too far back.

Trainer Quotes

W P Mullins quotes on Kemboy (FR)

It’s a fantastic race, it’s going to be very difficult to win it. Kemboy is improving all the time, he’s the right age and profile going into this race. He won a big handicap at Punchestown and a Grade Two last time out. He’s going to have to step up to Grade One level now, but we’re very happy with him at home and this race will tell us a lot about where we are going at the end of the season. We are hoping Bellshill will make up into a Gold Cup horse this year. We do have a slight concern about him going left-handed as his form is better right-handed, but we can see no reason for that. Leopardstown hasn’t been a happy hunting ground for him. He got beaten in a bumper, was beaten in a novice hurdle and fell in a novice chase. He’s in good form at home and looks fantastic. The form he showed at Punchestown and Fairyhouse in the spring, off an interrupted season, shows the level of ability he has. We’re hoping he’s a Gold Cup horse this year.

Trainer Quotes

Nicky Henderson quotes on Might Bite (IRE)

The ground is on the soft side and he really does feel that. He's one who will actually die for you. I'm privileged to ride him. That was as good a round of jumping as you'll ever see. He was just on it the whole way - he was doing crazy things. The horse was just enjoying himself. He's been telling us he's right, but you just can't tell until you run them how much they have left in the Cotswolds (Cheltenham). That's obviously it for this season. We'll be a bit braver next year, though, and we might have a crack at the Betfair (Chase, Haydock). To defend the King George is the obvious one, but if the ground is reasonable we will think about starting in the Betfair on the way to the King George.

Trainer Quotes

C L Tizzard quotes on Native River (IRE)

It's unreal. The Cheltenham Gold Cup is everything in everyone's life and there's no pretending it's not. Richard Johnson was galloping as fast as he could and jumping as fast as he could all the time and the horse never let him down once. Might Bite came to him and I thought that was it, but he just powered away again. We've had a wonderful preparation with him, so you think something's going to go wrong in the race, but it didn't. His form has gone on from last year. I can't believe it. It doesn't get better, does it?

Trainer Quotes

Patrick G Kelly quotes on Presenting Percy (GB)

I'm happy and Davy (Russell) is very happy so that's a good sign. Today we were starting him out and we'll see where we go from here,. He jumps well and should do (make as good a chaser as hurdler). It was a very good race and now it's just a matter of giving him enough experience. There's plenty there (improvement) and he's an exciting horse for the future, once he stays in one piece.

Trainer Quotes

Gordon Elliott quotes on Shattered Love (IRE)

She's a big honest mare. She handled that better ground way better than I thought she would. Mark said she loved it and jumped from fence to fence. She was a little bit fortunate as there were a few fallers but that's just the game. She galloped the whole way to the line. We're lucky we've got a few nice horse at the minute so we're delighted. Jury Duty ran well in second as well. We'll have to have a think about it and see where she goes now. She's got plenty of different options. She handles that ground well, she jumps and she stays. She's a nice one to have.
