"He is very lightly framed. He'll get out to the paddock for a week now. Then we'll bring him back and potter around with him.
"Ben knows him well and everyone at home knows him well nowadays. The gap between runs (helps).
Winning Jockey: Ben Allen
"He normally goes through quite a big flat spot but the moment I got on him today he was really bright and well in himself.
"I was in quite tight room coming to the bend and horses like that normally don't like it but he was good today which helped me get out of trouble.
"Cliff has spaced this horse (runs) terrific. I was probably a bit harsh on him last start. I thought he was a bit plain and disappointing but the two horses that beat him had gone on and been competitive in town so the run was better than it looked.
"Today he was super."
