Winning trainer Sir Henry Cecil, who trained the first two finishers said, "I'm delighted for Sir Robert (Ogden, owner) and he's an improving horse. He looks as if he stays well and he could even be a St Leger horse. I thought both horses deserved to run as they both had a chance. The Derby third (Astrology) is a good horse but I thought he had a hard race in the Derby. My horses are owned by two different owners and I hate one beating the other, but they both ran very well. Noble Mission has run a very good race and he's improving as well."
Jockey John Murtagh added, "Noble Mission came there, but my lad was just getting organised - he's still a little bit green and a little bit raw. When I put my stick down and changed my hands he accelerated again to the line and won going away. He's a bit of a baby and he's still learning. It's an honour to ride for such a wonderful trainer as Mr Cecil and to ride a Royal Ascot winner for him is great."
