Verdict

Dr Marwan Koukash: "It was a surprise as he doesn't like this softer ground. He's well handicapped, though, and the instruction was to sit behind the pace."

Tony Hamilton: "I gave him a chance and he's come home well. Because they went so hard, it played into my hands a bit."

Richard Fahey: "This is a star of a horse and it's great for Marwan, I'm delighted for him. There are no plans - it was Chester, then have a look."
