Degraves He travelled well, Shane said he quickened up very well and had a bit of a look when he got to the front,. He'll have his break now and come back for a nice race in the spring. He's a Camelot so he'll go ten furlongs anyway and then we'll go from there.

Lady Stormborn I brought her away to work yesterday morning, she ended up only doing a blow out. She was so well and I've never seen her to go like it so I rang (agent) Kevin O'Ryan and told him she'd run and she'd win. The lads had a small few quid on her here, they weren't listening to me. She's a good filly. The last two weeks she's after turning the corner to being a real good filly. I'm going to check up now and see if there is a Listed race before the end of the season. If not we'll probably put her away to next season. I didn't look beyond today and she was actually going to Dundalk next Friday night but she was in here and worked so well, so we came here. The only little doubt was that we thought she likes good ground. She's out of a good filly, her dam dam was rated 108.

Pasley He's still raw and he doesn't want the ground that bad either,. I was off the bridle the whole way and the last 50 yards he pricked his ears again so I think there is plenty in there. He's still learning. He stays well and around a more galloping track with a bit better ground he'll be better again.

King Pellinor He did it well. He probably didn't really get the two miles the last day, it's nice to get a win into him,. I think the blinkers helped, they were no harm anyway. He handled the ground fine. I kept him out on the fresh stuff early. In the straight he kept galloping and the loose horse kept me company.

Degraves He did it nicely. The form of his last run worked out really well so he was probably entitled to do that but I think he's a smart horse,. He had no problem with the ground, he seemed fine on it and galloped through it well. I think he'll get a bit further but he's not slow. He quickens well, travelled really smooth, so I think a mile is probably fine for him at the minute.

Lady Wannabe She won it well and I'd say she is improving with age and her mother got better with age too. She travelled well, picked up well and quickened well. She seems to get 1m2f as well so has plenty options and is in the Blandford on Champions Weekend. She needs goodish ground and thankfully it dried up a bit.

Act Of God They went very hard early on and it probably suited him the way it turned out,. The ground has improved from yesterday, which is a help, I was pretty concerned when I was here last night. He's probably a bit unlucky not to have won his maiden before now. We might give him another run on the Flat before we got back hurdling with him. He's been busy enough, he'll keep going to the autumn and we'll see how he handles the softer ground then. I think he'll be more of a spring come summer horse and I'd like to have him for the spring.

Latrobe The main reason for coming here was that Lloyd and Nick (Williams) felt that it would be important to get a win under his belt this year and then we could make a plan for the second half of the year. He has options all over the place. He could go to Australia but he has options in America as well, there are places like Japan and there are big races here as well. I'm not sure where exactly he's going to go yet. He seems pretty versatile trip-wise as he's ran well at ten furlongs and also at one-mile-six this year. It was a messy race but he did have the right position. Donnacha said he always felt like he was well in command. You'd be delighted to get his head back in front. He won nicely. He's doing things right now as he's gone completely relaxed. I probably ended up going a bit slow for my own good but it's nice the way he switched off like that and he stays well in the last two furlongs, there is plenty in there. He's a lovely horse and I'm sure there are plenty of options for him.
