David Barron: "I think the handicap route will now be out of the options after winning this. I don't think it was so much of a case of the run at Musselburgh bringing him on, he was just not suited there and the soft ground didn't do anything for him. He has had two quick races so we will put him away and see how he is in a couple of weeks - in an ideal world we would find a little Listed or Group Three race for him."
