I thought we had lost it at the second-last when he pecked, but that has probably done us a favour, as I said to Brendan don’t hit the front too soon — he gave him a fantastic ride. He is a good horse, but he is still only a baby. I was umming and ahhing whether to run in the RSA. If I’m being honest, I was half-hoping we were going to get balloted out of this, but we got in easy, so I thought stuff it and the betting never gets it wrong. I half-fancied him to run into a place in the RSA, not necessarily win it, which would have made him a certainty for today. D Bridgwater, trainer
