Verdict

Oliver McKiernan: "I'm happy with that and it was a bit of a battle. I think I've learned from that race that he really needs a lead. But despite that he's won and he's tough. Everyone knew that he's a good three-mile horse and he's bred that way, too. I always felt that two miles was a bit short for him. All being well, he'll go to Fairyhouse and Punchestown. There is a good three-mile handicap for novices and he has options now in novice races."
