H Whittington quotes on Saint Calvados (FR)
He'll go for the Tingle Creek next and I'm looking forward to him going over the railway fences. He was just a bit rusty over the first couple but it was a good performance.

W P Mullins quotes on Un De Sceaux (FR)
He was second in the race last year, but he's a little older. Two miles on this ground will probably mean you won't see him at his very best, but he always runs a very good race so you couldn't discount him. Douvan has schooled brilliantly since Cheltenham and with what I felt from him at Cheltenham I'll be very disappointed if he doesn't come back to his very best. I certainly haven't lost any faith in him and he's shown no ill effects from his fall. Hopefully he can leave a marker for next season. Min ran fantastically well at Cheltenham and again at Aintree where he probably ran a bit keen to get home over two and a half miles. He's come out of that fine and provides some very good back-up.
