It's great to get a winner at Listowel and that's his seventh win for us and he's been a great horse. He has won five on the Flat and that's his second win over hurdles. He likes flat tracks and we'll keep him going now, why not. He ran well on the Flat at the Curragh and hopefully he might go back for a Flat race. There may be another hurdle or two in him too.

Having viewed a recording of the race and considered the evidence the Stewards were of the opinion that H. Morgan was in breach of R10(3)(b) by unnecessarily hitting his mount after its chance of winning or being placed was clearly gone. Having taken his previous record into consideration the Stewards suspended H. Morgan for 1 raceday.
