Analysis

Tim Easterby: "He's been an unlucky horse, he likes a bit of juice in the ground and everything was right. Rachel is a good work rider who is progressing into a good race rider."

Rachel Richardson: "He maybe needed it (the run) at Newcastle and six furlongs is his best trip. This is my biggest winner, I'd never even ridden in a class two before."
