Analysis

Henry de Bromhead: "Both horses won at the Cheltenham Festival in 2011 and now they have both won here. We'll discuss with Alan and Ann about what they would like to do with all the horses, this fellow looked like he was enjoying himself and nothing has been confirmed about Sizing Europe, he came back fine after the race. I thought today was one of the best rides Andrew (Lynch) has given any of our horses."
