Analysis

Henry de Bromhead: "I've always liked him. His form is good when you look at the horses he has beat and the horses that beat him. He was a bit disappointing at Fairyhouse so we backed off him. He's such a big horse and probably had enough racing last year. He'll maybe have one more run after Christmas and then we'll look at the spring. There is a three-mile race in Naas and a two-mile-five in Leopardstown in January. He was deadly there and this is his game. I couldn't have been anymore pleased with him."
