Karakour I was delighted with him; he's a very green horse and it's a lot to ask first time out from a wide draw. Pat did really well to get a good position on him, and when he was challenged he tries really hard. There is a lot of improvement in him; he's a typical Aga Khan horse as he's lazy at home but he did well to rally back.

Invincible Ryker I thought Ross gave him a very good ride from a wide draw,. The plan was to go forward but they were going hard and he just took him back and settled him in. He got a nice clear run. Seven is a good trip for him. Whether they went too hard in front, I don't know, but he came home well. I'm delighted to give Ross a winner. He's in riding out for us for the past few months and he's heading off to Australia tomorrow for a month. That'll give him a bit of a boost. He rides well. He used his head well on him and the 3lb was a help. I'm delighted to get the first of the year out of the way. He'll keep him going up here as he loves the surface and seven is probably his ideal trip.
