Analysis

Gordon Elliott: "It has been a happy hunting ground for us, and to be honest he wanted to be winning like that as it looked a very weak race, but he has kept the owners happy. He ran in the Ulster Derby last time (sixth) but he didn't get the best of runs that day. You could run him back over here somewhere under a double penalty, and then maybe find him a handicap on the Flat at Galway."
