4th April 2019 – Aintree – These were difficult conditions for juveniles and he has had to really tough this out to beat a resilient runner up. It is more than possible that he will be better still on a sounder surface. Strictly on form this would leave him a fair way behind the Supreme winner. That said the runner up here was given a more positive ride than the one he was given at Cheltenham.
4th April 2019 – Aintree – He took up the running with more than a circuit to go and was quickly kicked into a clear lead. Perhaps he eased off on the home turn before kicking on again. He probably enjoyed the run of the race but still had to show great tenacity to stick with the winner until the final few yards. He could be competitive over this trip on soft ground but will surely need another half a mile at least if competing on a sound surface.
4th April 2019 – Aintree – He has raced prominently and remained fairly close up in third spot right through until the line. He will surely be better on faster ground and has performed exceptionally well here despite the conditions. He was a miler on the flat and one would have to think his stamina would have been stretched in these difficult conditions.
4th April 2019 – Aintree – This was an improved display and offers a little encouragement to the argument that he has been inconvenienced by racing on the inside at Cheltenham in his latest two races.
Band Of Outlaws
4th April 2019 – Aintree – He was best over seven furlongs and a mile on the flat and presumably struggled to get home here given the conditions.
Fanfan Du Seuil
4th April 2019 – Aintree – He briefly looked likely to play a part in the finish when looming up early in the home straight. However, his promising run soon petered out and he finished a long way behind by the winning line.
