Verdict

Dermot Weld: "He did it nicely. He was a little bit keener than Ruby would have wanted and as a result probably didn't win as impressively as we expected. I was a little concerned that he was going to tire at some stage. We'll see how he is in the morning and hopefully we'll run him back. The ground is beautiful and he's a relatively fresh horse. Hopefully we can get him to relax a bit better. He got geed up at the start when a horse bumped into him and it set him alight. If we get him settled I believe he can come home a lot better than that. We had the right man on board today."
