Verdict

Sally Randell: "A bit like Bradley last year, he took a great hold and run away with me, but I felt confident at every fence as I knew what he was going to do. He gave me such a great feeling and battled all the way up to the line. I had so much horse underneath I would have been shocked if got beat. I know I've said it once or twice before, but that is 100 per cent my last ride as my nerves are getting the better of me and it's now time to pursue my training career. I've been taking my training modules at Newmarket and I plan to take over from Andy Turnell. They have taken me in like part of the family and hopefully I can now enjoy supporting this race as a trainer."
