Analysis

Alan O'Keeffe: "He's been a victim of his own consistency, he always runs his race and gets no respite from the handicapper. I'm so pleased his won here as this is the local track for the owners but now he's won he'll probably go up a few pounds and go back to finishing second and third again."
