Analysis

Paul Nolan: "Bryan gave him a lovely ride. They went a right pace early on but then they stopped in front and this race tends to go like that as we won it two years back with Arklow Ger. He didn't jump well early on, but he jumped much better towards the end, and Bryan gave him a great ride."
