Analysis

Brendan Duke: "It's an enormous thrill to train a winner for them. I first met Jim (Bolger) in 1978 and he has been so good to me, any time I need some help I just pick up the phone. This is a great day for me, it's like winning the Derby. I rang him on Thursday to say I was thinking of running here and he replied 'run him if he'll win'. I think this horse is pretty decent. I've always loved the sire, he was tough and hardy and won the Dewhurst in a good time. He might run again at Sligo on Wednesday as he's a horse that's not afraid of hard work."
