Analysis

Tom Jonason: "It was a winnable race and we wanted to get some more experience into him, and if anything he was more relaxed today. He's had two quick runs and we might now prepare him for a big one around Christmas, or maybe the Tolworth at Sandown. If that all goes well, then you have to look at the Festival."
