Verdict

Willie Mullins: "He's a huge horse and you'd think he'd like a bit of give in the ground, but he loves this fast ground and he was impressive. He seems to have a lot of scope and a lot of ability, but he is ground dependant. We'll keep going as long as we can. I would imagine we'll try and find a novice for him in Killarney and maybe Listowel if the weather holds."
