Analysis

Aidan O'Brien: "I'm delighted. He only has one eye so he gets a bit intimidated sometimes. Coming out of stalls, he wasn't sure where he was so he went a bit right, but he settled into the race when he worked out where he was. When he goes left-handed, he can't see the rail. He's in the American Leger at Arlington later this month and he's a possibility for that. We also have Magician in the Million and Adelaide in the Secretariat."
