Richard Hughes: "He was a bit green then in a race that wasn't run to suit but this time he knew what to do."

Richard Hannon jr: "He'll be a lovely one to go to war with next year. He was always a lovely yearling but took time to come to himself and was a bit weak and disorganised first time and needed a run to sort himself out. But he's got a lot of scope and a good action and attitude. He looks a proper horse, and he's got a proper pedigree."

Deirdre Johnston: "We're delighted with that run as we don't really wind our juveniles up too much for their debut. We'll look to try and win a maiden with him this year but he'll be a much stronger horse next season. His dam was a winning half-sister to our smart stayers Double Eclipse and Double Trigger who Ron (Huggins) owned and this one looks as if he'll want a trip in time."

Michael Bell: "We're very happy with that as he'll come on a lot for the run. We'll try and find a small race for him this year but we expect him to come into his own as a three-year-old."
