Analysis

Adam Ryan: "He'd been showing the right signs at home and it was just a case of education. We've always thought a lot of him. He's a big race horse, but we had the best man on board for that. He just gave him time to relax. The horse looked round, he was entitled to it. There was a big crowd and it was his first day at school, but once he got rolling he lengthened out and galloped straight to the line. We'll sit down with Sheikh Fahad, his racing manager David Redvers and do what's right for the horse. He looks like a horse that could get a bit further."
