Verdict

Harry Skelton: "He did it very well because the fact he only ran six days ago was in the back of my mind. He was fresh and well at home, though, and we had to run as he was in such good form. It was worth the journey, the handicapper had us 8lb well-in so if the Ascot race hadn't left it's mark he should have won. It was a nice pot and now we'll see what the handicapper does."
