Verdict

Tim Dennis: "A winner at long last. My parents bred him. He ran quite well in a bumper 12 months ago last October and then we did his wind. We got him back again in the New Year and it was his first run in a handicap today and we got lucky. It's the first winner since I took on the permit from my dad over four years ago. I've had about 30 runners and had a few seconds and this is my first winner over hurdles. I'm relieved as much as anything. I've got three horses on the books at the moment. I've only got a permit and I've plenty of sheep to lamb so I'm satisfied with my lot. I wouldn't rule it out (Taunton on Thursday). I entered him just in case he got brought down or something early on. It's just nice to have the option."
