Verdict

Hughie Morrison: "He won well and we always thought he'd improve for better ground. He looked in trouble at one stage, but he obviously stays well and if hadn't been so exuberant at the last (hurdle), he'd have won even easier. His form was absolutely solid coming into today, so it's nice that he's won again and I would imagine that will be him (finished) for the season. I'm not sure there's much else for him in the calendar. We'll have a think over the summer about what we're going to do with him next season."
