Analysis

Terence O'Brien: "He won this race off 109 two years ago and we were hoping he'd go on to better things but he has had problems with stomach ulcers and hasn't been enjoying his racing since. I think his stomach ulcers are under control now. He'll continue to mix it between hurdling and chasing, and jumps well."
