Unfortunately That's a relief. When a team like Cheveley Park comes in you want to do well for them and things just haven't dropped for this horse. We probably jarred him up at Ascot running him on the very fast ground and the summer just hasn't gone our way. Chris said he pinged the gates but he's just gone to drop himself out and Chris thought he was in trouble for most of the way. He thought he'd bring him wide and have one long run at it. It's worked perfectly and he's given him a very good ride. It's his first ride for me but he's a lad that I've followed for a long time and he's a good, strong, aggressive rider from what I can see. You want the guys who listen to you and try and follow your plan as best they can. Chris has done that and I'm very happy. I'll have to speak to Chris Richardson and the team now. The only race now for him is the Ascot Sprint and if that came up with a bit cut in the ground we have nothing to lose by having a go at that. I'd say he'll go to stud at the end of the season. He was a very good two-year-old last year and he's shown he's still got some ability now. I'm sure he'll do very well at stud and he'll be a very popular commercial little horse.
