Nothing but quotes from trainer Adrian Bott on his key runners at Warwick Farm on Saturday.
Make Em Cry ($9.50 TAB) – Race 1 Thoroughbred Breeders NSW Lonhro Plate (1100m)
"He was pretty raw on debut. He showed good improvement going into that race and showed there was improvement to come because of how green he was. I loved the natural speed he showed."
"Going into his debut he was doing a few things wrong which is probably why he slipped under everyone’s radar and went around at 20/1. Physically he looks fantastic and is a real two-year-old type. Just a natural runner. Hopefully he has made that necessary improvement going into Saturday. He can't afford to make those same mistakes in this grade."

Siege Of Quebec ($3.60 TAB) - Race 6 Aquis Farm Eskimo Prince Stakes (1200m)
"He hasn’t missed a beat since his first up run. It was a brave performance. There was a lot to like about the effort and there’s a lot to like about the colt going forward. We expect him to get better the further he gets into his preparation so although he is stepping up slightly in trip here it’s still well short of his best."
"It’s a nice race for him and a stepping stone for where we want to target him. He is a colt that has got so much natural ability and potential. The Randwick Guineas is where we are heading."
Prompt Response ($5 TAB) - Yarraman Park Breeders Classic (1200m)
"She is a horse that runs well fresh but no doubt improves throughout her preparation. I think she is naturally a good doing mare but it normally takes a couple of runs before we see her peak performance. In saying that, she only had a short turnaround from the spring carnival so hopefully she can resume with a nice performance first up. She is a quality mare and is never far off the mark."
"The Coolmore is the race we’ve got in mind for her and she’d be very well placed in that race over an ideal trip for her."
Supply And Demand ($4 TAB) - Bowness Stud Mile (1600m)
"We've kept him nice and fresh, just ticking over. There hasn’t really been an ideal races for him recently but he is a horse that does so well in his work and is thriving at present. He is forced to carry a bit of weight again but he’s in great form at the moment and I think we’ll see a much sharper horse this time around than we did last start."
"We have got a couple of races in mind for him going forward where he’ll stretch out in trip."
