Soild run - 12/1 into 9/2 - went down at short-head and a nose. Original quote: "Is a horse we have always liked - he has loads of ability but has yet to show it. He has plenty in his favour also here today being upped in trip. Cheekpieces and a good draw (2), plus first time in this grade. Charlie Bennett knows him well. We will be disappointed if he is not thereabouts in this race. Looks a nice e/w price."
