Xcite We are delighted with her and she deserved that win. She is a big filly and is just starting to fill her frame,. Hopefully it's onwards and upwards with her. She might go for a handicap now. She has a beautiful page and is only improving. It would be lovely to get a bit of blacktype with her. Mrs representing

Invincible Diva She had a great run first time and she did that well. Shane said she tries her heart out. The ground was probably a little bit slow for her but I had to take that chance. She was always in control and is a speedy filly. I hope so (that she is Stakes class). If the ground was good there's a five-furlong Stakes race in Tipperary coming up and she would love to hop off the quick ground. Look she has won now and that is the main thing. Jon Kelly (owner) is based in California - he had Beautiful Morning with me last year and Pincheck with me. This year we have Pincheck back, he went to America and came back. He has six two-year-olds with me this year and we have had two winners and a second so far. He has got some nice ones.

Morpho Blue I'd say the mile stretches her a bit and ideally a stiff seven is her trip and she is a filly going the right way who has a beautiful page. She dug really deep today and we might go looking for black-type with her now.

Morpho Blue She picked up well, they went quick and it suited her. Seven furlongs is about her trip but she'll get a mile. She is a good mover and any old ground suits her. Hopefully we'll get her up to Stakes company and that is the plan for her.

Camphor She loved travelling in behind and Shane said as soon as she got to the front she pricked her ears. He was very happy with her. It looked a very good maiden and everything was fancied in it. A lot of them had good form but her run in the Cork maiden worked out well. She appreciated that little bit of give in the ground, being a Camelot, and the rain came in time for her. We'll see where we go but judging by the others she could make up into a Listed class filly. She'll stay well. She's okay at a mile-and-a-quarter at the moment but will stay a mile-and-a-half.

Cayenne Pepper She’s a lovely filly but I was surprised last week when Shane said she’s ready to go. I thought being by Australia that she might need a bit more time but he said no,. I’d say we’ll take our time with her, and she was bought to be a three-year-old. She has a good temperament and did it right. She has no big entries but I’d say we’ll put her in the Moyglare when the time comes. Ascot comes up very soon and I think she’s going to be a mile filly anyway. She needed every bit of that seven furlongs.

Building Bridges He sort of makes it hard work for himself as he travels on and off. He's been like that in all his races. Shane thought four furlongs out that he was never going to get there and then he ends up winning a length-and-a-half. He actually makes it look easy in the end. Basically he probably wants up to a mile-and-six and a good galloping track. I don't think ground is any issue. He might have made it easier for himself today if he hadn't stumbled coming out of the stalls. He got caught very wide on the first bend. He is what he is. He's won his maiden now, thank God, and we'll go from there.

Klute That was great and Shane couldn’t pull him up (took a long time for him to return to the parade ring). He was really well in himself and back up to seven I think he enjoyed it. We’ll aim at seven-furlong Listed races, and he likes top of the ground. He might shape up to a mile but he looks like a sprinter and is very strongly built.
