Verdict

Alex Gorrie: "We thought he was a fast-ground horse so we ran him at Haydock after he won at Musselburgh that year and he never ran after Royal Ascot. He ran well last season but he was never himself. He had some time off and now he's back to his best, so we're over the moon. We expected him to go well today, but because he hadn't won for two years we daren't be too confident."

Graham Gibbons: "He broke well, travelled round nicely and picked up well in the straight."
