Quotes on Darasso (FR)

He ran well enough here the last day in a good race (when fifth in the Galmoy Hurdle) but I'd say coming back in trip was a help to him and he likes soft ground,. Barry gave him a good ride, he kept him in the race without forcing him too much. I guess we'll stick to these kind of graded races as he's too high really for handicaps. He could have a shot at a Grade One later in the year. These are probably the races for him and we'll be sticking to soft ground as much as we can with him.

Quotes on Cilaos Emery (FR)

it was a good performance and he always promised plenty. It was a pity he missed most of last season but he making up for it now and I'd imagine Willie will find another similar contest for him and hopefully he'll continue stepping up the ladder. You'd hope he will reach Grade 1 standard — he has done it over hurdles and he jumps fences well. For a small field it was a very competitive race today.

Quotes on Mengli Khan (IRE)

I thought it was a good performance. When he had something to aim at he winged fences. Davy said they just weren’t going quick enough down the back and he let him stride on. He jumped the fourth last and third last very well, and he went to pop the last two which he’ll probably learn from. It’s hard to believe he ran on the Flat as a two-year-old but he looks to be a chaser with the big bone of him. He took to that well. I’d say he’ll go straight to Leopardstown now. The scope he showed is what really impressed me.

Quotes on Scheu Time (IRE)

I couldn't have dreamt it would have taken him that long to win his maiden as he always had an easy way of doing things. It was bad going not to win a bumper with him but maybe he's just a hurdler,. He ran very well the first day (over hurdles) at Catterick as it turns out, as the winner won a Grade 3 race afterwards and the fourth horse also won subsequently. Today was a soft race but he could do no more than he did and he jumped great. He wants better ground and we'll step him up in trip and I hope stepping him up in trip will improve him. The lads (J&T Partnership) would love to go to Aintree with him as they go there every year so we'll put him in the 2m4f handicap the first day and see what handicap mark he gets before making our minds up.
