Analysis

David Bass: "He's a brilliant ride, he travelled great and jumped well, he's still well handicapped. He's got so much scope, he's the sort I love to ride, you just give him a squeeze and up he comes. Ben is doing very well, he's been good to his word as he said I'd ride most of them and I have."
