Godolphin representative Diana Cooper said: "He had won three Listed races so we thought we'd step him up a notch - he has gone and done it nicely. I don't know what he'll do now, but there will be plenty of opportunities over 10 furlongs on good ground."
De Sousa said: "He travelled well, so I just let him roll. He's gone and done it well. That was a Group Three, so perhaps we'll look for a Group Two now. Everything was right for him - the trip and the ground was perfect."
