Trainer Quotes

Ross O'Sullivan quotes on Western Sea (IRE)

That was great. He has climbed from 86 to 95 today. We'll see how far he can go. Mark said he handled the ground fine, it was the complete opposite to the last day. It's great that he handled soft ground today, it gives us more options,. He settled better today, my biggest fear was that he'd be keen on that ground. He was very keen the last day. If he keeps climbing it will be great, he might go for another handicap now after Christmas. He'll keep going the handicap route for the time being and we'll see how far we can go. The owner has been lucky for me. We've had four runners for him now and four winners. We could just keep climbing with him, or step him into a better handicap off a light weight. We'll see what is there for him. Two miles seems to be okay for him at the moment.

Trainer Quotes

Eoin Griffin quotes on Castletown Quary (IRE)

He's a nice horse but still has a bit of growing up to do. He's green but had enough in the tank to do it. I'm a bit undecided now whether to kick on over hurdles or go for a winners' bumper. Jamie felt he's good enough for a winners' bumper but he's a bit keen and we might be better off going the hurdle route.
