Quotes on Western Victory (IRE)

She is a decent animal and it is unfortunate what happened at Listowel and it was one of those things. She is a six-time (including one point-to-point) and Listed winner now and is plenty valuable. We'll try and find as easy a contest as possible and try to get as many days out of her as possible. She is a fair one.

Quotes on Golden Jewel (IRE)

He ran plenty free but he's that sort of little horse and even at home he's like that,. He did it well. I thought when he made the mistake two out he was in trouble but he still pulled it out. He seemed to love the ground and when I saw beforehand how good it was I was delighted and thought he'd have a chance. I've been hitting the crossbar recently, and had three seconds, so it's time one came home.

Quotes on Act Of God (GB)

I was hoping he'd run well in his first handicap (hurdle), he was in good form for his first run back and I was hoping for the best. He won't go to Galway and has won twice around Tramore so could go back there. He could run again on the flat and I'll discuss it with Mr Comer. I had a winner for Brian (Comer) at Kilbeggan last Friday too and it's nice to have another one.

Quotes on Future Proof (IRE)

He’s just come down a little bit and he ran very well here last year (in the October Handicap). He might go now for the Naas November Handicap and then back over hurdles. He’s a fun horse that can win races. He’s not altogether simple but often those type of horses get on well with women.

Quotes

Quotes on Goulane Chosen (IRE)

It's about time he took advantage of his mark over hurdles because we have tried a few times and it didn't work out. Maybe he wasn't 100 percent fit once or twice but he was hopping today. He was entitled to do that with the mark he had. We haven't really looked to see what is coming up for him. The chases are scarce enough for him at the moment. He won on very heavy ground before but in his older age he finds it easier on the better ground. It's usually the other way around.

Quotes on Beat Of The Sea (IRE)

Ryan got into a bit of bother but lucky enough she was good for him. She pinged the last even though she didn't have a lot of light at it, and she battled all the way up to the line. She wasn't winning out of turn. She disappointed us in Downpatrick the last day, possibly it was due to her first run in a handicap and maybe I went back too quick with her. She had run well around here which is a big plus, and we might come back here for something.
