Supasundae I thought it would be a bit too quick for him over two miles. I only came here as a prep run for the three-mile hurdle at Cheltenham, and to win this is some prep run!. Robert was sure that when he had Faugheen in his sights at the last that he would stay every inch of the way, and he did. When he got to the front he was only pricking his ears. He’s only in the three-mile hurdle at Cheltenham so that’s where he will be going. He won over 2m5f there last year, and we ran here to try and get him jumping quick. We know he stays so that’s why we are going for the three-mile race. He jumped absolutely super today, and I’ve never seen him jump so well. He’s a much better horse on better ground and that’s why he comes into his own in the spring. He doesn’t like slogging around on heavy ground. He is by Galileo so there must be a little turn of foot in there somewhere. It’s really sad that neither Alan or Ann (Potts) are here to see the horse fulfilling his potential.

Platinum Warrior he’s a nice horse, is growing away and he's still a bit on the weak side. We'll put him away now for the winter and he'll be a lovely horse to look forward to next spring. He'll probably always want a bit of nice-ish ground and it's only starting to happen for him really. He's got a very easy way of doing everything and he's just improving. He picked up well from his last run here as well. He was lame after that night as he had a drop in his foot so it was a good effort. He doesn't take a lot of work as he's light enough framed and we just kept him ticking over since. You'd have to think he's a black-type horse; he’s got the physique and the pedigree so we'll dream away.
