Verdict

Mark Bradstock: "He could be the best of the lot (Plaid Maid's offspring). It is early days and while he doesn't compare with Carruthers over hurdles, he had a bad start in life. He is very game, just like the whole family. He is very tough. Even if the second had got to him, he would never get past him. His mother produced a few very good horses and he could be the best of them. He was an orphaned foal and was bought up by a cob. There is a bit of cob in him. He's definitely got a bit of an attitude. We always thought he wanted three miles but what he does over fences is anybody's guess. Soft ground was slightly my concern but it certainly didn't worry him. He will go over fences before the end of the season. I thought he was a certainty at Chepstow and he won, and today I did think he had improved and was longing to see him over three miles - it worked out."
