Verdict

Henry De Bromhead: "I'm delighted to win a beginners with him. I was thinking about whether we should run again but he seemed in good form and the lads seemed delighted with him, he schooled well yesterday so we thought we'd take our chance. He was rated 137 over hurdles and ours normally improve for fences but he didn't - hopefully he might now. We always thought he was going to be a real good horse but he probably doesn't want extreme ground. He'll go handicapping now. We'll maybe ride him with a bit more restraint and up him in trip."
