Quotes on Ancient Spirit (GER)

It’s nice to see him back up his win in Navan. He’s a lovely horse and is growing in confidence getting his head in front. He didn’t get things his own way today and had to go after the horse in front. When he’s got there Shane said he did it easy enough.

Quotes on Georgeville (GB)

He did it nicely and had better ground than he had at Naas. At Naas nothing went right for him, he was drawn very wide, got a little bit of interference early on, the ground was very testing on his first run of the year and he put it all behind him today,. He also had a better draw today and he was the one horse of ours who didn't reproduce his homework. He had been working well before and since Naas and is a lovely horse. Potentially he is a Stakes horse but ideally I'd like to find a winner of one race next. I wouldn't be afraid to go another two furlongs.

Quotes on Patrick Sarsfield (FR)

Declan said he was quite keen today, that a horse just sat on his backside the whole way and he was nearly too keen early. He said he got into a rhythm and he just kept filling him up. He said he picked up nicely and he's galloped the whole way to the line today. He had to work today but it was a very competitive race and it was good money (50k to the winner). That's only the sixth race of his life and he's a big horse so hopefully he'll keep improving. I not sure where Joseph will go with him but hopefully he'll end up getting black-type somewhere. He's won a nice pot so it's good for the owners.

Quotes

Quotes on Celtic High King (IRE)

he stepped up nicely from his first run and did things right, which was important, because he can sometimes be a little keen at home. Shane Hassett has been riding him out and he settled beautifully for me today. He travelled into the race nicely, handled the ground and stayed very well. It didn't look a bad maiden beforehand on paper with Jim Bolger's being rated 100 and we thought the runner-up (stablemate Nobel Prize) wasn't too bad either. It was nice improvement from him and hopefully he'll keep going that way.

Quotes on Fort Myers (USA)

I jumped to make to make the running but Colin wanted to go quicker so that was fine,. I just said I'd slot in behind them. I just had to wait a few strides for my run but once I did get out he quickened up nicely. He loves this kind of surface and likes a bend to run around so I'd imagine you'd have to think about it (Breeder's Cup). I'll leave that to Dad but I'd imagine he's certainly in the mix.
