Verdict

Roger Charlton: "He has been immature, and he showed that immaturity again as he jammed on from the start. But we have done a lot of work with this horse. The people who have been riding him and who have been involved with him have been fantastic and have been rewarded for their patience. We have been backwards and forwards to Kempton and things like that. He's actually been working with Al Kazeem. We could not believe he was working as well as he was with Al Kazeem, and this was way back in March. He has always been talented and I said to Ryan 'just ride him like a good horse' and, as usual, Ryan gave him a fantastic, confident ride. It was a bit rough early on, perhaps lacking a bit of pace. He's a nice horse. Ryan said just take your time, don't make great plans yet, don't be in a rush to say Royal Ascot or anywhere else."
