Insignia Of Rank Gary rode a fantastic race because I think the horse is best at a mile-and-two but he was in such rude form on Tuesday we decided to run,. We thought there would be a fast pace in the race and with €75,000 on offer we thought we'd take our chance. The only thing that worried me last night was the way Shekiba ran because she was working very well. I was a little bit disappointed with her last night but fillies can do that at times. This horse showed what he's doing at home and that's why we are here. He likes a box seat and has more gears than you think. He's versatile ground-wise, it's immaterial to him. We had Galway as the plan but that rules that out now. I suppose we'll have to stay Listed now or that calibre and take it from there. Don't be surprised if in a year's time you see him over hurdles as the owners love hurdle racing. I doubt it but we'll see as he's a very versatile horse. He's a horse that performs on the big day and they are the ones you want.
