Jockey Ahmed Ajtebi said, "It was a great effort. I was confident he'd finish in the first three and he ran up to his best. I beat the winner the last time we raced but obviously he's improved and he ran third in this race last year, so it's great for the team. My horse has come from handicaps to running second in the World Cup after a very good Carnival, so I'm delighted with that."
