Camelia De Cotte I thought it would be hard giving her (Pravalaguna) weight but there wasn't a whole lot in it. It could have gone either way - I thought Ruby (Walsh) might have a trick or two up his sleeve but luckily enough we had the horse underneath us. She would probably be entitled to (go to Punchestown), she is hard on herself is the only thing. We'll see how she comes out of it. She's very sharp. You saw more than I did as I just arrived here when they were pulling up. Paul thought she was going a little right today, I don't know why. He said the ground was well watered and it's a credit to Fairyhouse to produce ground in weather like this.

Laverteen I suppose it was a tight race (today). I was a bit disappointed with him in Naas when he turned in and looked like he had a chance and just sort of got run out of it. That was a competitive race in Naas. Sean was less than confident before it - he thought the track might not suit him and the ground was a bit quick. He handled it quite well in a small field, he jumped well and stays well. He could go to Fairyhouse or Punchestown but he has also schooled well over fences and he may go over fences soon.
