Verdict

David O'Meara: "It was a great ride by Hughesie. I spoke to his agent after he was booked to ride and told him he could be a tricky ride. He doesn't settle sometimes but he's learning with every race and growing up. I will probably give him an entry in the Ayr Gold Cup and see. It's the kind of a race that could suit him as he likes a fast pace and plenty of horses to run with. He is a horse that is getting better and may even get seven furlongs next year now that he is growing up a bit."

Richard Hughes: "It's been a great day. I knew I had some good rides but this was definitely my best ride. I saved the best until last. Just look at the crowd - it's a credit to Ascot that they have made this day what it is."
