Henry de Bromhead: "He stayed at it well and the change of tactics worked well. He jumped well apart form the mistake two out. We just decided to change the formula and put Davy up. He gave him a good ride. Andrew (Lynch) did nothing wrong on him, he was only beaten half a length here by Los Amigos, but we just decided to change things on him. I was going to go the cross-country route as he's done a lot of schooling and is deadly at that but after that performance we might look at the big three-mile novice handicap at Navan in March."
