Analysis

Nicky Henderson: "Barry said he was fine until he got to the first ditch, where he nearly threw him into Windsor Castle. Other than that, he was good, just enthusiastic. It's not easy to go to Cheltenhams, Ascots and Sandowns and win first up. That was a perfect opportunity but he's got a long way to go before you talk about big targets."
