The Champion Jockey, earlier successful on 25/1 chance Born In Fire but beaten on Don Cossack in the Grade 2 hurdle, was a notable booking on Moore's gelding, having been allowed 'off' his retained owner Gigginstown House Stud's Far Away So Close in the race.
Trainer Moore was in France but his son J.D. Moore later stated “obviously we're delighted to win this race and it's a lovely pot to win. Lastoftheleaders' owners have been very good and have stuck with him even though he's had a lot of niggly problems.”
