Analysis

Kevin Ryan: "This fella is lightly raced and boasts a decent record when fresh but we had ground concerns today so I was not expecting such a big performance. We needed to get a run into him and he will do nothing but improve for that. We have looked after him and that was always the policy with Mr Reed's horses. He liked to bring them along gradually and that is exactly what we have done."
