Charles Byrnes: "From the first day we schooled him he jumped fantastic but he's had so many problems. He's been done for his wind and he's had one or two more problems as well. Heavy ground seems to be the killer for his wind. We'll tip away from here and he'll be entered in whatever two-mile races there are for him. It suits him to be out in front and he's able to keep filling up. He won a good few races two years ago from the front. He should be easy to train after today!"
