Analysis

David Barron: "It's smashing. It's absolutely tremendous when an old boy like him comes good. He never surprises me. He's getting a bit of age on him now but he's a good horse. I wouldn't have a notion (where he runs next). The owner was talking about retiring him - we were going to give him one or two goes and that would be it - but he's still got an engine."
