Analysis

Brendan Duke: "I took a bit of a chance running him here as the handicapper put him up 4lb but he was running under a 5lb penalty. I wanted to run him in a 0-75 though, as that could be a distant memory in the future. He loves hard work and I think he is only just coming to himself. He is in the Tattersalls Sales Race at the Curragh on August 24 and it is a race I would really like to win. He could run at Gowran next Wednesday in a 0-85 nursery."
