Verdict

Ian Hamilton: "It was a bit nerve-wracking because we haven't had any luck lately. We've had two seconds beaten by two neighbours and I thought that was going to be the case again as Pauline lives on the next farm. He's a lovely horse and he's very laid-back, Ann rides him all the time. I bought him off a friend of mine, (former trainer) Howard Johnson. We'll probably go back to Aintree and miss Cheltenham I think. We were a bit worried about him having the fall last week but we schooled him on Saturday and he jumped like a buck so it took nothing out of him and after the top two (My Tent Or Yours and Melodic Rendezvous) didn't run we thought we'd have a go."
