Trainers Quotes

Paisley Park put in a career best display last Saturday when finding only the unbeaten Mr Whipped too strong in a Grade Two contest at Warwick.

Lavelle said: "Paisley Park is a lovely horse. He was just probably slightly too green. They went quick down the back and he has never jumped that fast before in his life. He galloped his little heart out down the home straight. 

"I would love to get another win into him and I would not have an issue with just running him in a novice hurdle with a penalty.

"I'd like to get a run into him on slightly better ground as we have not had the chance yet and I don't think he is an out-and-out soft ground horse.

"If I said what would be the ideal race to run him in, it would be the Albert Bartlett. He has got the pace and the stamina for that."
