Verdict

Willie Mullins: "It was a good ride from Davy biding his time and I loved the battling qualities of the horse. I don't think he'll have a problem with another half mile. He was always a brilliant jumper and he pulled out a lot today and he didn't show that at Cheltenham. He'll head to Punchestown. He'll get an entry in everything and he could go over a trip if the ground got better."
