Trainer Quotes

W McCreery quotes on Belle Boyd (GB)

The filly (Petticoat) that beat us last time is decent, and she did that well. They went steady early but she put it to bed well. Billy said that he was able to set his own fractions. She is improving the whole time, and the more experience she is getting the better. She was very tricky to get into the stalls, and it took us a long time to get her in. She was losing confidence, and in fairness Will Hayes has done a great job with her. She stood there like a lamb, and she’s popping out a lot more settled in her races.

Trainer Quotes

M Halford quotes on Surrounding (IRE)

I'm delighted. She got struck into behind at Limerick and we lost a lot of time with her. She's a big genuine filly,. They went very steady and that probably helped her with her fitness. Shane was probably in the right place and gave her a nice ride. She's a lightly raced filly and saves her best for the track. She's very game and we'll probably run her in another handicap. Hopefully she keeps improving. Eventually we'll take a chance one day in a Listed race as the owners have all the family. They are terrific owners. They are so patient and never put me under any pressure.

She was a bit green but got the job done. I hope there is plenty of improvement in her, and two winners I had in this race before went on to win Group 1’s. The Albany is an option for her at Ascot.
