Faradays Law she had some good runs early but she lost her way a little bit then. Joseph (O'Brien) got her and she ran well here to finish second and then she went to Leopardstown and Ballinrobe and ran OK but back on this surface she seems to enjoy it. She's a tough filly and kept at it well today. Joseph said she had gone on the surface before and the trip was no problem. He said she was in good order and that if everything went right she would take a bit of beating. She's quite a big filly, she might just be coming into herself now. She's a well-bred filly as well so every win is a plus.

Vallambrosa I think Seamie headed me but she put her head down the last 50 yards and kept trying. She had more experience than most of them and has a good attitude so there was no point in taking her back too much.

Band Of Outlaws Wayne gave him a great ride. He ran very well here on Guineas weekend, when Donnacha was very happy with him, and he just had nowhere to go,. Then he didn't get in to the Britannia (at Royal Ascot). This was obviously a nice pot here on a good track. We actually thought he was a six furlong horse earlier in the year but he's actually better going seven or a mile and holding him up. He had to wait today, and he got a little nudge, but he didn't panic on him and got there lovely. Galway is a possible. We'll see what the handicapper does and go from there. He has plenty of pace and travels so he's a decent handicapper in fairness.

Latrobe I have to thank everyone in the yard, especially Joey Fallon, who rides him out, and Lloyd and Nick (Williams) have been so good to me. I’m so grateful and lucky. We always loved him and bought him as a yearling in Newmarket. From day one we loved him and he never really let us down. Everything myself and Donnacha learned has been from dad and mum, and we are so lucky to have been brought up in Ballydoyle. I don’t think Donnacha and I have ever actually fallen out. We’ve had disagreements but we’ve never fallen out. Myself, Donnacha, Sarah and Ana all get on very well together. We are all very competitive with each other and against each other but I’m as happy when they win as they would be when I win. Life is too short to be falling out over trivial things like sport. There are so many variables that can happen during a race that a jockey has to be able to make up his own mind. There is no doubt that Donnacha is riding well and it was his move that won the race.
