Flindt I thought yesterday was the highlight but they came through for me. I never ever thought it would happen again today, it's a fairytale,. The horse came through for me, he jumped like a buck, and Sarah gave him a wonderful ride. It's special for it to happen here and Peter Roe was very good to name the race after me, that was moving. Having had the Irish National winner here as well it's a lovely way to finish. This is my second biggest day, I will never forget it. We are changing roles, he'll just boss me about a bit more!

Betty Zane I'm having my last two runners tomorrow if they get the papers right for Ciaran (Murphy) to take over so this is a lovely way to finish. I started 20 years ago with a winner so this is a nice way to bow out and I'd like Ciaran to get started. We're doing a role-reversal and I'll be assistant - I'll be the general dog's body and driving the van!. She is a lovely mare. We brought her schooling two weeks ago and she did it like that and when he gave her a squeeze today she just said .well, I'll go faster!.. We always thought a bit of her but she had a few issues with her wind so we gave her a long time off and got it fixed. It is lovely for the owner and Aaron has been on a good diet to ride her. He rides her at home, gets on well with her and is a top head lad for us. Today's win is an extended family affair.
