Goose Man I brought him back to two (miles) because he has learned how to put his feet under him and gallop which he didn't a year ago - experience of racing has helped. I'm very happy with that. The second last was as good as a fall when that happens, but I love the way he picked back up again and came back on ground that they say is unbelievably soft. He'll have an entry in the Close Brothers Novices' Handicap (Chase) over two miles five. He's going the right way and he's a horse I like. It's great to win over two when he's really a three miler. Better ground will suit him but I'm not saying good ground.
