Joe Fanning: "He jumped and travelled well, but I never felt like I was going to win the race."

Mark Johnston: "This horse's sire, Shamardal, was probably the best I've ever had although he was around the same time as Attraction. It's great to train his progeny and he's doing so well. It's exciting when you train a horse like that and he goes on to be a top stallion. It's great for the horse and the owner as he's been running well all season and the handicapper hasn't been dropping him so I'm pleased he's won a nice prize. Obviously Rainbow Rock was the unlucky horse of the race. Cam said a horse came across him at the start, he got checked lost a couple of lengths and just dropped himself out. I did wonder what was going on early on, but in hindsight he did a really great job. He said he just nursed him slowly back into it. He is in again on Saturday so he will get the chance then over two furlongs further."
