Analysis

Tom George: "The week started badly but it has really come right now. It had been the plan to come here for quite a while and it has come off. Tom (Scudamore) gave him a great ride."

Roger Brookhouse: "He's a lovely horse. I bought him at a Cheltenham sale. We have had a fantastic week and they are wonderful people here."
