Verdict

Andrew Balding: "He's a very good horse on his day - he won a Listed race earlier in the year and he's been second and placed in a couple of these big handicaps. I just thought the ground had gone against him, but that just shows what I know. He's in (a mile handicap) on Champions Day and we'll have a look at that and all other alternatives. He's a horse who is in good form and that's always a help at this time of year. His ability to handle ground this soft surprised me. As a two-year-old we avoided soft ground ever since he didn't handle it on his debut as a two-year-old at Salisbury. He won with a little bit of give in the ground at Chester two runs ago and ran well at Goodwood with a little bit of give in it, so it was worth giving him a go. I'm very pleased with him - he's a very decent horse on his day. I wasn't going to pull him out because of the ground and I'm glad we didn't, because he is what he is. The race on Champions Day is over a mile, so we'll see. Why not? The prize money is great. They are all running great - we just have a nice team of horses and a good team at home."
