“He has such courage and determination–I needed him to dig deep for me and he did,” his rider commented. “He’s such a great horse and this matches Epsom. The pressure was on today and we pulled it off. I don’t think I’ve ever ridden such a courageous horse. I just can’t get over his courage in the last half-furlong. When they’re as good as this and as determined as this ,it just makes it easy.”

“I was concerned because he had a very hard race at Epsom. We always knew he was very tough, but he had to be 110 per cent today I knew Aidan would have his horse better than at Epsom, so I knew our horse had to be better than at Epsom to win again. He ran a magnificent race. He showed the speed that he has today.”
