Analysis

Fozzy Stack: "He loves it here. He did it well and Billy said he was going to let Maarek make his run first and hope that he pulled himself up in front. Maarek seemed to hit a flat spot at halfway and he did it well in the end. He's in the Wokingham on Saturday and he'll probably go up a lot for that so he might be well-in, but he'll need a lot of rain (to run). His front legs are tricky so he needs a good dig."
