Analysis

James Reveley: "He's taken to chasing like a duck to water. For his first run last time after a long lay-off it was impressive to go and nearly win over an inadequate trip. He does stay very well. He will have learned a lot from today. We got a nice lead and it paid off. He's difficult to train. We can't do a lot with him at home so we've just kept him ticking over with steady work. He's potentially very good if, touch wood, we can keep him in one piece."
