WHAT CONNECTIONS ARE SAYING

* “If it was a handicap I would have said he’s there with a very big chance, but I think under weight-for-age conditions he may be a length or two off them” – Awesome Rock’s co-trainer Leon Corstens.

* “There’s never such thing as an easy Group One. I’ve got a healthy respect for all the competition, but I wouldn’t change her for any of them” – trainer Nigel Blackiston on Suavito

* “This was his goal, so he’s quite fit now and everything is going well” – trainer Paul Beshara on Happy Trails
