Quotes on Shopping Around (IRE)

She can go up in trip and over a fence - we'd slow down Frankel if we got a hold of him so she'll be going further and jumping bigger. She is a lovely mare for lovely people. I hope Jamie never retires, he was brilliant on her and rode her twice in her point to points and won on his second ride on her. He was in our place on Monday morning and said he never felt worse in his life. He said his weight is great at the moment but rang me yesterday to say he was struggling.

Quotes on Joeswayornoway (IRE)

I don't know why she was such a big price - I thought she'd be favourite!. She is a grand, honest little mare and had a great run in a maiden hurdle, which worked out well, in Naas. I thought coming here today she'd have a right chance after her last run here. She is in a handicap on Sunday - I put her in just in case she would win, and she'll run if she's well. She's not a real summer mare and would like soft ground. I was looking for a 7lb claimer and asked Ruaidhri Tierney (jockeys' agent) and he recommended Philip who now rides out for me once a week. Philip is freelancing, with Edward O'Grady and John Ryan, and he rode that horse well, he did what he was asked and there was no more he could do.

Quotes on That's Lifebuoy (IRE)

She had a couple of good runs in maidens. She was third in Fairyhouse behind Peter Fahey’s good mare (Royal Kahala). The ground is a little bit better today and we rode her wide to get better ground. Philip Donovan gave her a great ride. She’s a lovely mare going forward and will win again hopefully.

Quotes on Aprils Joy (IRE)

It's brilliant for the owners (Mick & Molly Syndicate) as they only bought her last week and she's after winning twice,. I might give her a chance now and we might go to Galway with her. She will have a good few choices there. I don't know exactly what she is going to go for but we'll target Galway.

Quotes on Lighthouse Rose (IRE)

If she had jumped the second last the last day she would have won and she jumped neither (it nor the last) - if she had jumped either she would have won (when third at this track in July). She is locally owned, it's a builder's but no-one is able to be here. She could come north again. She’s only a small mare and had no weight today. I’ll maybe run her over three miles at Sligo on Wednesday week.
