Wore down the long time leader to get home. Original quote: "Didn't do much wrong in all his starts at the start of the season. Slightly calmer waters that last time as eased back in grade. Didn't run too badly though that day (6th of 16) and down a pound helps. Had a small break since (3-4 months) but is a horse that likes to race fresh - last two wins came off breaks. Will love the ground and the trip is fine too - still 6lbs higher than last win over fences, but this will only be his eighth race over the bigger obstacles so should have more to come. Has done plenty of work at home and should have a big chance."
