Trainer Quotes

Gordon Elliott quotes on Noble Endeavor (IRE)

We were hitting the crossbar all week but they are running well. They are not second last though and it’s better to be second than second last. That’s brilliant for Chris Jones. He’s been a big supporter of the yard and I’m delighted to be able to repay him with a nice winner like this. Chris invests an awful lot of money into Irish racing and is one of the main men here at Leopardstown so this is a special day for him and his family. These are the lads that deserve it so it’s great. We were probably a bit further back than we wanted to be early but they went some gallop. We’ve been second in it a few times so it’s nice to win it. Davy has ridden a lot of winners for us over the years but this has to be bang up there. I thought himself and Ucello Conti were the two picks and the ground was just a bit too quick for Ucello but he ran well. It’s a nice race to win. We needed it but they are running well so we are happy. I suppose the Irish National now would be the plan.

Trainer Quotes

C L Tizzard quotes on Ultragold (FR)

That was my first spin over the fences. Unbelievable. That was his first run over them too and he was back off his winning mark - I actually fancied him. He was very clever, dancing over ditches. There was a bit of carnage at Canal Turn but he knew what to do. That was amazing, this racing game is something else. He ran quite well at Cheltenham and was dropped a few pounds and then he goes and wins a huge race like this. The people who own him are all good owners of ours and they got a partnership going. He wasn't what we thought we were buying, we thought he'd be a three-mile-two horse but he's ended up winning over two miles and that was two and a half today. Harry has hunted alongside me since he was a little boy. Three out I was just thinking 'sit still' and he did. He's a great little lad.

Trainer Quotes

W J Greatrex quotes on Missed Approach (IRE)

He's given him a peach (of a ride). This horse this year has annoyed me because he's a good horse - he just hadn't got it together. He stays, he jumps and he's brave. The owner wanted to go to Uttoxeter on Saturday for the Midlands National but I persuaded him to come here. He might go for the Scottish National.

Sean Thomas Doyle quotes on Crosshue Boy (IRE)

It's been a massive week from Leopardstown Friday week ago to Wexford to here. We were lucky this was called off (on Saturday) as we couldn't have run in two places on the one day,. He's a fabulous horse when he's on form. He had a couple of good bumper runs and won three times over hurdles for me and then he just lost his way. We didn't know what was wrong with him but we gave him a break and he just started coming back to himself slowly. We are absolutely delighted. Hopefully there will be a race in Aintree for him, it would be great to have a runner over there. It will be one of the novice chases, we'll keep him a novice for the meantime. If that works out we'll go on to Punchestown for something similar. Trip and ground aren't a problem to him. Jumping is a big key to him and in fairness JJ (Slevin) was brilliant on him in Leopardstown but Harley does a lot of work and is closely related to Niall (Heffernan, owner) and he's brilliant on him too. I usually only get three wins a year so I am ahead of my target!

Trainer Quotes

Ross O'Sullivan quotes on Call It Magic (IRE)

He’s a horse with issues — muscles, back trouble and everything like that going,. There’s been a lot of work done on him over the summer. He got into a rhythm today — he loved it - a pair of blinkers on him, Ruby on him — and from the word go you could tell after three fences that today would be good a day for him. He ran over hurdles recently and he just didn’t enjoy himself. If you could just keep him right — he won his point-to-point by twenty five lengths. He won his bumper then by ten and we thought he was the real deal. Things just didn’t work out for him. If you can keep him right it clicks and it clicked today. All the big handicap chases are now back on the agenda if we can just keep him right.

Trainer Quotes

Paul Nolan quotes on Fine Theatre (IRE)

You can't beat breeding. For a King's Theatre he handled the ground very well and he jumps better than (half-brother) Fine Article. He jumped very well for a horse first time with no point-to-point experience. He looks like a nice horse for the boys again. Mikey was very impressed with him there. I made a bit of a mistake. I was standing at the last with Gordon Elliott and gave a shout at Mikey. He thought there was something coming at him so hit him three or four so that was my fault!. He's a nice horse, by the right sire. The whole family showed they liked soft ground no matter what the sire. He handles heavy ground very well and has a fair knee action. We'll definitely stick to that with him but we have no plans at the moment.
