Analysis

Liz Doyle: "He had a huge blow after Fairyhouse last time and I've really got stuck into him for this. That'll be his last run over hurdles, and Davy said he'll be a stone better over fences. He was rotten with ulcers and I figured out he wants more than two miles. It's lovely to finish here on a good note."
