Quotes on Bowerman (GB)

he’s 6lb better lighter on the grass and we always felt there was a big pot in him. He’s a very high class horse and I’d say his handicap days are over now. Our original plan was to run in the Lincoln at the start of the year and then go for the Royal Hunt Cup but I’ll settle for this! . He’ll go for Listed and Group races now and is in the Alleged Stakes. The guys have had a lot of fun with this horse and we’ll just keep rocking. It’s going to be hard when you step up another level but he’s well capable of doing it.

Quotes on Simsir (IRE)

He travelled like a nice horse the whole way and Ronan said he gave him a lovely feel. It was his first time on the surface, under the lights, and only his second ever run. They are hardened seasoned horses. He wanted to try and teach him something and come between them. He picked up well and just in the last 100 yards he said he was a bit green. He's just one of those horses that keeps his best for the track. We'll see where we go now and see what marks he gets. He has the size and scope to do it and only has the two runs. There is probably more to come from him.

I didn't even see the race as I was in with the physio getting some work done on my back!. I was just listening to it while getting needles stuck into me. He loves it around here and he's after getting strong so he handled the slower surface. It's a great pot to win with him. The horses have been hitting the crossbar for ages without getting their head in front. The owner is a great supporter of ours and a great supporter of Irish racing so I'm thrilled for him.

Quotes on Bolleville (IRE)

Shane said he was always happy with her. She travelled great and he said she kept quickening all the way to the line. She loved the ground and it's a while since she ran so she can only improve again off it. Today was basically a finding out mission and she's done it nicely so she could be very useful. Shane and Declan (McDonogh) share most of the rides but Eddie is a big part of the team and it's unfortunate that he's missed out on this. Shane switched onto her after Raise You (change in going) was taken out and he's given her a lovely ride. She's by Camelot so she's going to be a valuable broodmare one day. Hopefully she has a good future before that.

Quotes on Fresnel (GB)

I'm always conscious not to push the fillies too much before we get them to the track but her work had been good,. Everything I'd worked her with she'd had their measure but as I said I like to leave a little bit for the track. She showed me what I thought she was capable of here. She's still got a little bit of growing to do. She's not the biggest, she's still not fully mature, so for her to tough it out from the front in that headwind is a testament to her. I'd imagine she'll get a mile-and-a-half in time so we were keen to make plenty of use of her today over a mile. We'll take her up gradually and slowly. We'll see how she recovers and take it from there. I have my full licence about a year. I came from a breeding background then I got on the Godolphin course and really got into the training and racing side of things. It's what really excited me. I made the decision to go down that route and worked for some good people and got some good experience. I've got 12 in now and I'm keeping the head down and trying to get a system in place at home. It's great to see the result on the track as it gives you great confidence and belief. It's all about winners and results and there is no better way to advertise myself and the team.

Quotes on Harriet's Force (IRE)

From day one I knew she was a good filly but she's just been so green and I've never done so much work with a two-year-old than I had to with this one just to educate her,. Robbie worked her one morning and said 'this is special, the best two-year-old I've ever sat on' and that says a lot. She's well named. I lost my father earlier in the year and she's named after him. The other half-owner Sean Fitzsimons's wife Elaine, her father was Harry as well and he died last year. So it's a special moment. We've had a dry spell for a long time and it's our first winner out of the new yard. She's just pure class and she's probably a Listed horse in time or even a bit special, and a bit better, when she knows her job. We've held her in high regard and she's still learning her job. I think the mile is exactly what she needed especially with the pedigree she has. I have two of the half siblings at home, and they want further, Tenth Amendment is one of them. She's by far the best and I'm delighted to get the job done tonight. I'd like to put her away now and if I still have her for next year, I've always felt and one other person said to me, that a Guineas could be an aim for her. She's a fair tool and we've a good marker in the yard to aim at.

It was brave for a horse first time out and from where he was. Shane gave him a lovely ride. All he can do hopefully is improve for it and Donnacha's (O'Brien on Erlking) probably wants to drop back to six as he didn't quite get home.

Quotes on Gold Maze (GB)

It’s nice that he’s won his maiden. I’m not sure where he’ll go. He’s in various races and we’ll see. He loved that doing his own thing and the ground is right for him. He’ll only get better next year as a four-year-old.

Quotes on Vatican City (IRE)

I sat on him for the first time last week, I didn't know a lot about him, and he gave me a beautiful feel there today, I really liked him,. We were going slow and I didn't think there was any point tucking in behind one just for the sake of one horse and a bit of cover. He travelled really smooth the whole way but he's still raw. He changed his legs behind before he does in front, which is not ideal, but I'm sure once he learns he'll be a lot better. You can never tell (how good they will be). Anyone that tells you that they know straight away is a complete liar. He gave me a really nice feel today, he's by Galileo so you'd imagine he should progress next year. I think he's a smart horse but I can't tell you how good he's going to be. Some of the horses that handle nice quick ground you get to this time of year and there's nowhere to go except Dundalk so it's a good facility for that and Dad doesn't mind running a good one.

Quotes on Apricot Moon (GB)

she's a lovely, a big scopey filly and she was one we were looking forward to. When we saw the draw (16) we thought being first time out, and with greenness, it would be hard to do. In fairness to Billy he's great in those situations. He always rides the individual, rides to the pace. He realised he was going to be left too wide and slotted her in at the end. To do what she did, coming from stone last on the turn up the straight, first time out was good and was impressive. She's one to look forward to and I'm very happy. On paper beforehand it looked a solid maiden. We did like her and thought we had something coming. I'm not sure there's that much more for her; there might be a winners' of one in the New Year, I haven't really looked much beyond this. She's having a good blow there so we'll see where we go. Whatever she does as a two-year-old she's one to look forward to next year. We'll take it one step at a time and to win first time out was very satisfactory.

Quotes on Tasalka (IRE)

She had the rating to win, had been working nicely and loved the little ease in the ground. We'll see if we can get a bit of black-type with her, that's the target. I'm very pleased. I'd say that was a good maiden. With fillies at this time of year you are trying to start off and get winning brackets with them first and then see if you can progress. She ran some very good races last year and that's why she is a highly rated filly. I'd be very hopeful of getting black-type with her.

Quotes on Effernock Fizz (IRE)

She's a tough mare. She was second in the Curragh on Saturday and she ran in the same race last year before winning here over hurdles. We have her entered for the Petingo Handicap in Leopardstown on Champions Weekend so fingers crossed she’ll get in. She was due to go up 5lb and whatever she gets today should give her a good chance of getting in. She deserves a crack at a good pot. She's been consistent all season and we're delighted to get her head in front. Ideally she wants the ground a bit better but she's stronger this year and seems to be dealing with the softer ground on the flat. She was just done for third in the Grimes Hurdle at Tipperary. When she's jumping she just can't seem to get out of the tacky ground but on the flat she seems to be a different mare. She likes to get on with it and make the running. We didn't get a clear lead today but Mark gave her a peach of a ride. I told him if something wanted to force the pace then he could slot her in and get her settled. He said she just kept finding a gear for him.
