Verdict

Denis O'Regan: "He's obviously a class horse on the Flat, and you'd have to be happy with the way he did that. They went slow early on so I got him plenty of cover. He jumped fluently, and quickened up nicely in the straight. He's beaten nothing but he's won like a nice horse. Having been a Group Three winner on the Flat he's going to be more effective on good ground. It was good ground here today and if he doesn't get his ground for the winter there'll be no harm in it because he'll be one for the spring."
