Verdict

Mark Johnston: "He's obviously a very speedy horse so the ground drying out helped. He'd run a couple of times on soft ground and it's great to see some good weather for a change for horses like this. He had a good draw and handled the track, it's tough but the same for all, that's what makes it great I think seven furlongs is absolutely ideal for him. I don't think there's anything for him at Ascot, he's only rated 83."
