Gustavus Weston We always thought he was a good horse and he learned more running in the big handicap (Tote Scurry last time) which crowned him for this race. He’s getting more professional and I think he’s a horse that will progress.

Stanhope They are in great form. I said to Colin that I thought the stumble had cost us the race not realising we'd actually won it still!. I'm delighted to get another winner. This horse has had a few little problems. We've changed his training a little bit and he ran a blinder the last day. The way Twenty Minutes ran up the Curragh I thought this would be banker of the week but then I was afraid we had used up all our luck yesterday. When he fell out of the stalls I said we'd definitely used up all our luck but credit to Colin he gave him an absolute peach of a ride and we're getting used to these horses coming from last to first now. I've never ran him over further than five and six but I might be tempted to go to Galway for a little handicap over seven. Then we could maybe get him ready for a premier handicap on Champions Weekend over six. We'll see as we have plenty of options.

Sunday Sovereign I was happy the way he did it. I felt that he'd come on a lot for his first run and he duly did. That's what I hoped would happen. I wouldn't make any hard and fast plans at the minute.
