Quotes on Braid Blue (IRE)

He's a grand honest horse and stays galloping. I'd say he'll improve a bit from it. It's nice to get a winner for Philip McBurney, that's his first horse in training with us. You see a lot of the McBurney trucks on the roads. I'll get him home and see how he is before making plans but I'd say he'll definitely come on for the run.

Quotes on High Sparrow (IRE)

he tries and he's a tough little fella. He looked beaten in Limerick and he came back and it was the same again today. He jumped well on the whole, he missed a couple here and there, but he'll come on. I'm delighted for all the lads and he's a fun horse for them going forward. He should stay further as well and we'll see how he comes out of it and look for something in a month or six weeks. He could go up in trip or even a stronger run race would probably suit him and JJ was delighted with him.

Quotes on Monkshood (IRE)

He's actually a nice horse. We have plenty of horses backed up to run in maiden hurdles so we said we better start running a few of them,. He's a big chaser in the making and will be a grand horse. Whatever he does will be a bonus before he goes jumping fences. He'll stay all day.

Himself and Lucky Road both ran against each other in Killarney and we gave them both a break afterwards and both of them won since. He was grand there today and he is in at Listowel next week so we'll see. He has only half a tail as another horse ate it out in the field! It's not stopping him.

Quotes on Roi De Dubai (IRE)

He had run very well in Wexford over two miles in a pipe opener and this had been the plan all along and it came off. Sometimes once in a blue moon you feel you have a horse perfect and he was it. I was just praying I was right!. He's a real terrier, he's not over big but he just gallops and gallops and if something comes to him he puts his head down. He puts everything into it. He is probably best undercooked if anything. Towards the end of last year we probably ran him too much on quick ground and probably soured him a bit. The owners are over from America so it is brilliant. I suppose we will have to look at Galway. It will be a lot harder in Galway but we will have to look at it. For the people that own this, this is their Galway and Cheltenham but we might look at Galway if he sneaks into the bottom of big handicap hurdle on the Saturday or the Sunday over two mile five, two mile six.
