Verdict

John Spearing: "I think it's the downhill track he likes, although he really prefers soft ground. I don't know why it is but it suits him here, and he's not as good anywhere else. He's not run here since last year because there are so few races for him at the track - he's been very disappointing to be honest, but just in the last couple of weeks he started looking better than for a long time. I haven't done anything different."

Richard Hughes: "I let him rip out the stalls and he galloped them into the ground. He won it really well and kept on finding for me during the final furlong. He was great. It's great to have a winner here in my final ride at the meeting; it's lovely."
