Arthur Moore: "He did it well and he came on well from his last run. A better pace helped him. He's progressed well and looks like he'll make a nice chaser. He'll probably have to step up in company now, as he'll get a fair penalty for that. It's nice to get that win and hopefully he keeps going the right way. He might be a horse for the Dan Moore (Memorial Chase at Fairyhouse) next year."
