Analysis

Denis Hogan: "He's won that now for three years and that's brilliant. It's hard enough to get one never mind win the same race three times. He likes his own way and unless he's winning easy he tends to get swallowed up. That's his eighth win, though. It would be nice to get a better class of horse into the yard. A lot of the time we're dealing with double digit handicap ratings."
