Analysis

Tony McCoy: "He's amazing this horse, because he really struggles to breathe. He's been running on better ground and he's won twice now on the heaviest ground possible. We're all supposed to be experts in this game and if anyone was riding him, or had anything to do with him, you wouldn't believe he could win on this ground. I'm glad that Jonjo let me ride him. I had to ring him and ask."
