Analysis

Ciara O'Connor: "It was a nice introduction for him and a nice starting point. He needs a bit of cut in the ground and he'll be better off staying left-handed. I think he'd be better in a better race, he was a bit keen today. He could be anything, he won a string of points, and it's taken this long for him to fill his frame. He could be an RSA horse though that may be aiming a bit high."
