Quotes on Tartlette (GB)

we're delighted with that. She ran a super race here the last day. This looked a good opportunity to get a run into her and it cut up a bit. She was in good nick at home and we were quietly confident coming here. She loves the surface, she has won three times around here now, and loves top of the ground. I think there could be a race back here for her in a fortnight's time, we'll see how she comes out of it. If we get a dry summer we should have sport with her but if it's a wet old summer we won't, it's as simple as that.

Quotes on Tower Of Pisa (FR)

She ran a good race here the first time when she got the hang of things inside the last furlong-and-a-half and the step up in trip today suited. She travelled beautifully today and she's a filly going forward. It might not have been a great maiden but she's done it nicely.

Quotes on Spelga (GB)

He's very consistent and always runs a good race,. It was a ridiculously slowly run. Colin got a lovely position on him and I'd say the visor just helped him concentrate up the straight. It's lovely to win with him as Paul Rooney has been a great owner for us and the horse has been a good servant to him. It's great for Paul to get a winner because the owners are fantastic to have stayed so loyal all through the pandemic. Paul in particular loves nothing more than a day out at the races and we really appreciate his support. He'll get a good kick out of that.

Quotes on Blackstone Cliff (IRE)

He’s got a bit of class and just needs to drop the bridle. When he does that he finishes. He’s in the online Sale at Goffs on Monday. Obviously I’d love to keep him but we’ll see what happens there. He could make a nice hurdler as he’s big enough. Fingers crossed he makes a nice price for the owner or I get to keep him!. Emmet said he might be better in a better race as he has the class to travel. He’s still going the right way and is a nice horse.

he was very unfortunate here the last night when the saddle slipped on him. We always thought a lot of him from his win (for Andrew Balding) in Wolverhampton. He’s had a few setbacks but we waited as we knew he was a good horse.
