Verdict

Trevor Hemmings: "I was hoping for something today and it's happened, which is great. We bred this horse and he's lovely."

Mick Meagher: "He won the three-year-old hurdle here last season having been on the go on the Flat during the summer. He went on to win at Cheltenham and ended up running here at the Grand National meeting, so he was on the go 14 or 15 months. He had a good summer to strengthen up and we thought he would improve for the run today. That was the worry, as he's not fully fit. He jumps very quickly and it was a good performance. There is a race at Haydock he could go for in about three weeks and we might also look at something like the Gerry Feilden Hurdle."
