Verdict

Ben Curtis: "He won well and he's been very consistent. He handled the ground and the track. He's a grand horse for the future over hurdles. It's great to get a winner for Johnny - his first. I ride out for him every morning."

Johnny Murtagh: "Delighted to get off the mark. Thanks to all involved."

Valerie Keatley: "The ground made a big difference and hopefully that's the first of many. Tommy (Carmody, original holder of the licence) is still on the team. He's there every morning too."
