Noel Meade: "It probably wasn't ideal to start him off over that far. I don't think he needs two miles and seven furlongs, but he definitely needs further than two miles. The only real mistake he made was when the race was quickening up but he jumped well otherwise. He's still a bit of a baby. He'll probably go for a novice now over two and a half and we'll take it from there, but he'll really be a chaser in time."
