Analysis

George Margarson: "It was an epic battle, especially that last half a furlong, and he's quite a lazy horse. He won three times for William Haggas and the owners have kindly sent him to me. I thought he might need it, but he has been working quite well. I had him in the Duke of Edinburgh at Royal Ascot. He didn't get in off his current mark and that could be next year's plan."
