G M Lyons quotes on Ardhoomey (IRE)

We love him. With him and Brendan Brackan in the yard you are in safe hands,. Colin said he got tired at the end and he thought she (Gorane) was going to get back up and do him. He's one of those old age pensioners in the yard that does what it says on the tin. I'm delighted to have him. His wind doesn't seem to be as bad this year as it has started on other years. He should improve from that. This winter we've said we wouldn't mind having a go at seven at some stage. If his wind allows us that's what we'd like to do. It's just fun with him. Whatever presents itself, and while he's around and has a heartbeat, we'll partake and have fun with him.

Trainer Quotes

G M Lyons quotes on Medicine Jack (GB)

The horses are as fit as we can have them at home,. Part of me didn't want to run him and the other part said well we've had all of last season off . We literally couldn't get him to raise a gallop at home. He was a Group 2 winner but we gelded him at the end of the season and kept him going. His work was okay but was like we were seeing at two, without getting carried away. The only box we didn't tick today was the heavy ground but my theory is once they turn four I'm running them and if they don't handle it we won't ask them to do it again. The wheels are back on the wagon and we'll probably aim for that Listed race in Navan (Cork Stakes on April 7th). We'll see what the handicapper does and we'll tread lightly. If he gets back to any semblance of what he was at two we'll have fun with him this summer.

Ms Sheila Lavery quotes on Mr Scarlet (GB)

I bought him from Joe Foley at Fairyhouse and paid more for him (72,000 euro) than I have for any horse,. He's always been a very smart horse, and Gary said the last day that he would win next time. He's still fat and has loads more improvement. Gary said he put his ears back and really wants to race. He's got a great attitude and just eats and sleeps, hence he's fat!

J P Murtagh quotes on True Valour (IRE)

I thought this race was coming a bit too soon but he takes travelling really well. He’s been to Epsom and Ascot but takes it all in his stride. He just eats and sleeps, and is very tough and durable. It was a great ride today and that’s what won it. He was able to take the gaps when they were there, and pricks his ears a bit when he gets there. He’s thriving on his racing, and I felt today was the ideal race for him. I haven’t thought too much past today but he could go for the seven-furlong Hungerford Stakes at Newbury.
