Analysis

Willie Mullins: "He loves that ground and he's a hell of a jumper. "I'd imagine that was his Gold Cup. If he keeps improving we'll look at a graded race."

Ruby Walsh: "I think we struggled with him in trip, but we've figured out what it was. He is probably a flat-out two-miler when all is said and done. It was a competitive race and he travelled really well. He's a professional enough horse and he jumped super. It was his first run in a handicap, but he jumped magnificently and it was a good pot to win."
