Verdict

Paul Nicholls: "This is a horse who wants better ground. I thought about starting off in the Persian War at Chepstow next week - he could still go there if it's decent ground - but this looked the right option. Daryl said he was ready to go chasing but we'll see. There's no real plan at the moment."
