After the race Aidan O’Brien commented, “He had a couple of good runs over six furlongs before he stepped up in trip and ran a solid race in Ireland last week. He’s a tough hardy horse who loved the ground and the trip today. He has a lot a different entries in a lot of different races so it is very possible he will run again this year but he loves fast ground so the ground would be important for him.”

POSTPONED for trainer Luca Cumani was second, with BON VOYAGE for Richard Hannon in third.

There are two more races scheduled in the 2013/14 Tattersalls Millions race series, which take place at Newmarket Rowley Mile’s Craven Meeting in 2014, with £300,000 still on offer.
