Sire Du Berlais There was plenty of traffic, but he responded and was a willing partner. I was happy the whole way through the race. He was short of room at the top of the hill, but Barry gave him a great ride and he never panicked. I knew when it opened up he would stay going which was brilliant. I thought until 50 yards before the line we were still under a bit of pressure. It looked the race to go for with him, so it is great. I’ll speak to the owner and see what we do next, but to win the Pertemps is great. We had a very slow start, but it goes to show if you keep your head down and keep trying you will get there.
