Relished the soft ground. Original quote: "Debut run for the yard after coming over from France. Lightly-raced over there with just one run over hurdles (5th). Shows up well at home and looking forward to getting going with him. Any rain more rain will be fine and we at least get 7lbs from the Nigel Hawke runner so that will help. Hard to know much about the others, but we’d like to think we’d have an e/w chance here."
