Analysis

Patrick Mullins: "He could go back up in trip or stay here. The fact that he was asked to go around at that speed today was good experience for him. He could run at Christmas, but he's done plenty of racing so he doesn't have to."

Ruby Walsh: "It was a good performance. In fairness to Trifolium he went some gallop and never missed a beat. He stretched me all the way but you'd have to love the way he quickened up. He was very good."
