After race at Down Royal Fri, 8th Sep, 2017 (1st)
He's a very, very tough horse as you can see. He's a big, tall boy. He has improved and improved, he had a very good run the last day. We thought he would go very close today. He'll come on again from that. He found more at the end, he's very tough. Down the line I'd say he could be a very decent hurdler for someone. He'd stay going all day and he's very genuine which is important on that ground. I'd say he'll need a couple of weeks break before the next day and we'll look at what is coming up for him but he has plenty of options now because he will go up a little bit in the handicap. Thank God that makes the trip home a bit shorter - it's five hours!
