Trainer Quotes

Eoin Griffin quotes on Rathpatrick (IRE)

I'm delighted to get that. He hadn't been running too well up until this and we gave him a bit of a break after his last run and freshened him up. He had a few niggly problems, nothing serious, but just things that were holding him up a little bit. We decided to just take a pull and give him a couple of weeks off. It seems to have worked. We'll see where we go from here. There is a race at Fairyhouse on Easter Monday, a 2m 6f handicap hurdle, and there are a couple of options over in Aintree. The ground will very much dictate where he will go. He does want an ease in it.

Trainer Quotes

Anthony Mullins quotes on Shannak (IRE)

he loves it around here in January, and Ruby was at his usual boring brilliance!. Going to the last he rolled around a bit and I thought he was in trouble but he got back on an even keel and stayed on well. Even though he's a small horse, I was thinking of a beginners chase but not on bottomless ground. There is a meeting here later in the month and there may be another handicap hurdle for him.

Trainer Quotes

Henry De Bromhead quotes on Poker Party (FR)

I broke and dislocated my wrist four and a half months ago and that's my second ride back. . I fractured the wrist in a couple of places and it took a while to come back properly. Hopefully things will kick off from here. He has always jumped brilliantly at home loose schooling but when we ran him, his jumping was just appalling. I think you cannot move a muscle on him so we stuck Dylan up on him and told him to tie his hands to the mane and he was brilliant on him. He's a good horse but just couldn't jump and his jumping went to pot. He jumped pretty well today, still made a couple of mistakes but he'll be a nice horse when he gets his confidence. It's great to see Dylan back - he's a great little rider, is a good part of our team and is with me full-time and works hard with us. I'm also delighted for his owner Brian Acheson, who is a local man to Clonmel, as it's his first winner with us.

Dermot Anthony McLoughlin quotes on Dromore Lad (IRE)

He's an improving little horse, and Danny said he was still a bit green when he hit the front,. He's going the right way and that's three wins in his last four runs and beaten a head in the other. If they were all doing that you would be happy. There is a nice little race in him somewhere along the way so we might give him a bit of a break now. He's a good while on the go.

Trainer Quotes

Francis J Flood quotes on Peace N' Milan (IRE)

It didn't look on paper a real strong race. Zipporah had got a good hike like ourselves and to have the 4lb (in hand) was a help. She needed the 7lb claim today more than the last day,. We wanted to jump out with them, get her going a gallop and then let her lead us. It worked like we thought it might but it doesn't always happen like that. We'll aim for something in a few weeks time. There is a race in Naas (March 12) but it probably comes a bit quick. We'll see how she is but she is tough and likes that ground.
