Analysis

Joseph O'Brien: "He is a lovely horse. I got to the front a bit soon. The two horses in front of me stopped a bit quicker than I had hoped. He was quite green.He had a little look at the gap (entrance to the parade ring) and I just gave him a belt to straighten out and I didn't realise I was so far ahead. He is a nice horse and you would imagine that he would be well able for a step up in class."
