Trainer Quotes

Noel Meade quotes on Laverteen (FR)

He was good and maybe better than we thought but we did think he'd win a bumper. He had a few problems with his knees and things like that. I had to sit back here the last day because the other horse of Gordon's ran (Poli Roi). When it came to Friday he (Eddie O'Leary) said 'we have a few more' but I said 'it's my turn'. He said to me 'will you win' and I said 'I think he has a great chance but I can't say he'll definitely win'. So he decided to run the two of them. I'd say he's a nice horse. He won't run over hurdles this season as I'd imagine we'll keep him a novice. He just hasn't been that easy to train and I'd say he wants that really soft ground.

Trainer Quotes

Peter Fahey quotes on The Big Dog (IRE)

he's a cracking horse and came highly regarded and Aidan Fitzgerald had him for his point-to-points. He's probably finished now and he'll have the whole spring and summer off and come back hurdling in the autumn. I'm delighted for the Kellys, from near Banagher in Co. Offaly, as the whole family are a big racing clan. They have had horses since 1982 and this is their first winner but their dad John isn't that well at the moment.

Montalbano looks well treated by the weights,. At the ratings it looks a match with Tombstone. Hopefully our fella might be in better form at this stage of the season.

Trainer Quotes

M F Morris quotes on Sams Profile (GB)

He's a nice horse, a good horse, but wants it softer. We won't run him until a bit of rain comes and will look for a winners of one somewhere. He is a next year horse really and it looks like stepping up in trip won't be a problem to him.

W P Mullins quotes on Pleasure Dome (GB)

that was nice - she ran very well in Sligo and that experience, and the extra two furlongs suited her down to the ground. It was Paul that decided to be more positive with her today than he was the last day. Galway might come too soon and we'll try and keep to these rated novice hurdles.
