Analysis

Jim Old: "I ride him every day and he's like an old teddy bear. He's a character and jumps like a buck. I suppose I have to think about retirement at some time, but I'm not ready to retire and I don't think he is. He wouldn't have liked the ground that much and he's had all the problems in the world, as old horses do. He likes to go right-handed and with Folkestone and Hereford closed I'll be struggling to find another race for him this season."
