Analysis

Cam Hardie: "I was a bit lucky as I had to wait for the gaps to appear, but I knew I had a lot of horse under me. He quickened up nicely and he's won this like a very good horse. I'm very lucky, I've got a very good agent and a good family behind me and I'm with a very good stable at the Hannons. Its my first ride for the stable so I'd like to thank Mr Cumani. He was unlucky last time at Epsom. He kept on galloping. Hopefully I can keep on going."

Matt Cumani: "We've thought there was a big race in this horse for a while and it's fantastic to see him do it. I thought the jockey gave him a fantastic ride."
