Verdict

Tony Martin: "He missed out on the English National and then Frank and I thought the ground was a bit quick for him in the Scottish National. The ground and trip were right for him and he always showed there could be a day like this in him. The Thyestes was his first run over fences and then he ran a excellent third at Cheltenham. I expect he'll be put away for the summer now."
