Analysis

David Marnane: "He was a little bit unlucky the last day. He's been running well all year and he's improving. He's still a big, clueless baby. He seems better when he gets a bit of daylight and was better when he got out wide in the clear. I thought the lack of pace might have beaten him at halfway, but he switched out and did it well. We'll see what the handicapper does, but we may look at the (Irish) Cambridgeshire."
