Analysis

Evan Williams: "That was great and to be fair, the horse ran well last time and he just needed a freshen up after that. The horse has been improving in his work and seemed in good form coming into today. His owner is actually away, but I was keen to run because he's going so well at the moment. We'll just tip away with him. He's not a fancy fellow and if the handicapper is too harsh on him he might struggle, but it's great to see him win today."
