Verdict

Sabrina Harty: "He deserved that big time as he's been a bit unlucky. He ran behind Trading Leather last time when he was clear at a stage. He'd dropped a bit in the weights which I was a bit surprised at as he never runs a bad race. Rory said he was wincing a bit the last day on the ground. It was probably a bit too firm for him then. He's suffered a bit with sore shins and bit and pieces in the past - he's a big horse. He did run a couple of times over hurdles but he was keen. He has a lot of speed and we'll probably keep him to the Flat."
