Karl Thornton quotes on Sierra Law (GB)

he’s been getting there; he’s only four and maybe still a bit weak and is still learning the game. He’s a typical flat horse as it takes a few runs over hurdles to get into the game.

Trainer Quotes

Mark Fahey quotes on Das Mooser (IRE)

She travels really well. Mark said she's the kind of mare who just wants to get on with it. It was probably a big ask for her coming here and making the running but she was very good. After she won her point-to-point she had a few little problems that we ironed out and we’ve had this as the plan for a while. She’s brilliant to jump. She unseated on her first point start but she was just too brave. Johnny King would have ridden her but he’s out injured and it was his idea to make it. He deserves plenty of the credit.

John J Walsh quotes on Hard Bought (IRE)

he went well and jumped great and that’s his trip. Maybe it was a bit quick for him at Clonmel the last day and Philip gave him a great ride today. We put cheek-pieces on him today and maybe it woke him up a little bit more. Hopefully he’ll win again and we’ll get something else for him along the line.

Trainer Quotes

Michael P Hourigan quotes on Fairymount Boy (IRE)

He was probably in front too soon today and swishing tails, he didn't swish them the last day. He looks well handicapped over fences on what he has done over hurdles and he has kind of turned the corner. Please God he will keep improving. The way things are it is possible (he could do well in a big handicap). My hands were tied in coming here today because of his rating and trying to find a race. He has handled this track so I would look at Galway but it would be the weekend in Galway, there wouldn't be anything else earlier on in the week. There's Killarney and I might give some of the festivals a rattle! We'll keep him on the go. I will probably stick with fences for now. He has jumped well today. He is a different horse this year. I just hope it is upwards and onwards with him. He has had bits of problems - he was done for his wind ages ago and he had kissing spines. The owner Pat Hayes is from Ballinrobe. My main aim would be to get him a win there some time during the summer. It could be a Ballinrobe meeting he goes to next.
