Analysis

Dan Skelton: "I couldn't see all his races in France so I started him off over the intermediate trip at Doncaster. He just didn't stay. He hasn't stood still since then, and this was his trip. He wants softer ground and if there's another race, it will be a £40,000 handicap at Sandown on January 4."
