Stayed on well to land the e/w money. Original quote: "Won this race last year and conditions should be ideal for him today as he bids to defend his title! Going has generally been too holding for him on all his starts this season and prefers the ground very wet. A couple look well-in here and not getting any younger, but very hopeful of at least a place as he does also love it here at Plumpton. 2 1/2 stars."
