Verdict

Oisin Murphy: "I might have hit the front too soon on him here the last day, but that was over seven furlongs and he was dropping back to six today. I knew the ones in front would come back to me, I thought I had probably hit the front too soon again but he ran on well. I'm getting great support from Mr Balding as well as Ed De Giles and Joe Tuite. After you lose your claim it's important to keep your name in the papers by riding winners."
