Quotes on Harvest Bow (IRE)

She beat all bar Emmet Mullins’ the last day (Fujimoto Flyer, subsequent Listed scorer at Auteuil) and I don’t think God almighty would have beaten that,. She was entitled to win and she stays so well that the two miles two here was a help. She wants that easy ground too.

Quotes on Powersbomb (IRE)

He's done it very well, and is a real stable star for me as I only have a few in. He's been to Leopardstown at Christmas twice, and the Festivals at Cheltenham and Punchestown. He'll go to Galway, and may go for the amateur handicap on the first night or the Guinness Handicap on the Friday. He'll probably get more entries for Galway than any other horse, as he'll be in hurdles and chases as well. He may get an entry in the Plate but I think it is too far as he walked home after the last over 2m 4f at Cheltenham.

Quotes

Quotes on Rocky Blue (IRE)

I bought him for 11,000 euro as a yearling (at Goffs) and we always thought he was good, but he took his time to come. He has a good French staying pedigree. He learned a lot in Punchestown, where he only jumped the last two hurdles, and we felt if he jumped adequate he would improve a lot on that. He won well on the Flat at Navan and got a right slap from the handicapper. Maybe he’s right, but I haven’t gone back on the Flat because of that. Hopefully he holds his form and we can come back here for the Grade One race in February. That’s the obvious target. Hopefully the wheels stay on the bus until then.
