he's a great racehorse and I'm very proud of him and I've felt all along that he's never gotten the credit he deserves. If he doesn't now, it will be unbelievable as the horse has done his own talking. Ryan went out with a plan; he thought they would go very hard so he was going to hang on to him. I said to him 'that is plan A' but if he had to revert to plan B or C, so be it, but you don't tell Ryan Moore how to ride a horse!. Hughesie (jockey Richard Hughes) said at York that Australia just got first run on him and on the day I don't think he would have beaten him but Hughesie thought he would have been a lot closer and given him a harder race. Turning in today I was thinking 'oh god he has a lot of ground to make up' but in fairness to Ryan he was saving ground while Australia had to go wide. He made up the ground well and when he passed one and picked up, I thought he would go very close. He's a horse that has taken us on a great journey, both me and the owner and he'll stay in training next year. He won't go to the Arc but could go to Ascot on Quipco day.
