Verdict

Warren Greatrex: "He's Gavin's ride, but he tore a pectoral when he was schooling this horse at the weekend. I don't know what we'll do with the horse now. It's a bit of a surprise. I knew he would be competitive, but I didn't think he'd win like that. I don't think I've probably had a horse this good, we're not used to going anywhere big. He's four from five now and he'll have to have an entry at Cheltenham. But the ground would be an issue, so we'll see. He'll have to go somewhere else first."
