Verdict

Tony Carroll: "He's run really well and has put up a personal best performance. I'm very pleased with him and he's a really nice little horse. He has progressed all winter and at Newbury last time out they broke the track record when he was fifth, so he's still progressing. Turf's no problem for him, but we ran him on the all-weather because he didn't come to us until late last year from Germany. We moved on through the winter to see what we had and he has been a delight. I would think he will be out soon enough, but we're swimming in a big pond now and he's only four. Caspian Prince has had a few little niggles since coming back from Dubai and he was 11lb higher today compared to when he won this last year. He's run well enough, but missed the break a bit and was struggling after that."

Jim Crowley: "He didn't have the best of draws and he had to come through horses. It was a really big run and this horse can be a tricky ride as he has to be held up. He got slightly caught out early on by the pace but he was doing all his best work at the finish and ran really creditably. If you don't get a great start and you are on a hold up horse you need luck in running so he did well to finish where he did."


Roger Varian: "We're delighted with that. It shows he likes Epsom having finished fourth in this race last year and he has run well again today. He has to be held up as that is how he runs and when he is most effective. He is staying on all the way to the line and run a really great race. People will think we're mad but he will now go to the King's Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot. He ran a fantastic race in that last year and was only beaten three lengths so we are keen to go to Ascot and have another go."
