Verdict

Barry Geraghty: "He's all class. The ground was a concern, but he had the pace. I thought for a little bit after the last, just going up the hill, I had to give him a bit of a squeeze, but he jumped on the bridle when we straightened up and it was a piece of work from there. He has an engine. He wouldn't want that ground, ideally, but he's a high-class horse."

Michael Winters: "He jumped good and solid and was well balanced on ground he wouldn't like. With the conditions of the race here it was a hard one to walk away from. He didn't put a foot wrong and having walked the track we let him run. He'd have schooled at Dromahane (point-to-point track) in the past after a meeting there, when the ground would be chopped up, so it wasn't anything new to him."
