P Twomey quotes on Editorial (GB)

He's a nice horse and I felt he was ready to have a run. It looked a nice place to start,. He got left in the gate and was green in the race so I'd imagine he'll come forward a good bit from it. I haven't done a lot with him.

G M Lyons quotes on Bucky Larson (IRE)

He made the running the last day and it was just the wrong way to ride him. His work is good at home and he loves hunting one down. He got there and either he idled or the other horse seen him and had something to chase down. It was a good run and they have pulled clear, and that is what we expected him to do in Dundalk. We were disappointed coming out of Dundalk but I would rather win here.

Andrew Slattery quotes on Spiorad Saoirse (GB)

He was a bit coltish in Cork so we decided to geld him and he's improved,. It was the owners who wanted to come here really, I thought he wanted another two weeks. He worked well last Tuesday after working moderately in the Curragh the week before. That's obviously brought him on and there should be improvement to come. When he was a colt we were doubting his resolution but he showed it there. I thought we hadn't a strong team this year but that's a grand start. The pressure is off me now. He has a good pedigree as he was a cast off from the Maktoums. He's a half-brother to a horse of Richard Fahey's called Another Touch. He's a good tough hardy horse and looks like he'll get further. I don't know how good he is yet to be honest. I thought he'd need the run today and we'll look for a nursery now. He's still a bit green and you'd have to be happy with him. I wasn't sure about the ground either but he's handled everything.
