Analysis

Ruby Walsh: "He travelled really well and, of course, I was doing my best to keep off the watered ground. He jumped super and went past plenty of horses turning in. He has won over a mile on the Flat so I didn't want to be in front too far out - the winning post is at the top of the hill and you don't want to be winning turning in and not get home. He's a decent horse and Tony has always liked him."

Tony Martin: "He's a lovely horse and has answered every question we've asked of him. He warrants a little break after this and we'll see where we stand after Christmas."
