Trainer Quotes

A P O'Brien quotes on Hydrangea (IRE)

I'm delighted for the filly and I'm delighted for Wayne. She is Winter's work partner all year, and maybe she turned around and said Hydrangea you can have this one today!. She was the only one of the four fillies that had not won a Group 1. We felt that Winter was going to improve a bit from the run. She was carrying a little bit of a tummy (held up in her work at home with a stone bruise) but needed to run. The winner will stay further. She could go for the Prix de l'Opera. Winter is in the Arc, and the Opera is another option.

J S Bolger quotes on Goldrush (IRE)

She did it well in Navan and that was a good step up again. I thought she'd stepped forward and I'm very pleased with her,. She's a nice good moving filly. The ground was just a little on the slower side at Navan and she handled it, and she's handled that surface out there tonight fine. She's come on from Navan and she'll come on again from tonight. You would be thrilled with that.

Trainer Quotes

D K Weld quotes on Making Light (IRE)

She's a very consistent filly and it's nice to win another Group race with her,. All being well she'll go for the Gladness, that would be the logical progression for her. Over seven or a mile, she seems to be equally versatile. I gather what happened (on the way to the start) was that there are swings down below and some of the children ran out and she unseated Leigh. She was always travelling like a winner all the way through and the only slight concern I had was a mile on the very heavy ground, on the score of fitness. It's lovely to win the first Group race of the year. Obviously we're hopeful that Pat will be back soon. She's a lovely mare and a lovely mare to train. I think she'll be equally effective over seven as a mile the way she was travelling there at the seven. It was lovely to win it especially as Eva Maria (Bucher-Haefner) was here today, she came over to see her run.

Trainer Quotes

Tracey Collins quotes on Nivvo (IRE)

Her stamina came in to it late on. She's now qualified for the all-weather championships and it's not too often you get one for that so I'd say she'll probably go there,. I'll speak to her owners but it's a rare opportunity to run for that money. I've already got one going over as well (Captain Joy). She's been terribly consistently and sometimes those those fillies, once they get a bit of confidence, can keep going forward. Seven is not her ideal trip but conditions were there so we decided to send her up.
