Analysis

David Nicholls: "I feel like I've won the Nunthorpe! All the lads who have ridden him have been telling me to run him over further. He's in the sales at Newmarket so I don't know what will happen. Chris has been a friend of mine for a while and he rides for the owner (Lady O'Reilly) so when I was told he was coming, he was always going to ride."
