Michael Buckley: "To be fair to Jessie, she had this race in mind for him all year because he loves this better ground."

Jessica Harrington: "This has been the plan all year, he's been disappointing on heavy ground. It was much better at Cork last time when he won and that gave him confidence, he's jumped great and he stayed galloping. I suppose he might end up a Galway Plate horse, I'll have to treat him like a good-ground horse. I thought he had a good chance off his weight."
