Winning jockey Christophe Soumillon said, "I was on a horse with huge potential but who was carrying a lot of weight compared to the others and who was going over this distance for the first time. The race worked out for me as I was able to sit behind the good horses and he proved himself very courageous in the straight. He had to go through the gap and finished like a really good horse."

Trainer Mike de Kock added, "I wasn't sure that he would stay, to be honest, but Christophe thought he would, and he was right. I said before that this was a very very good horse and I hope he'll go very well in Australia. He now knows exactly what to do in the race." This was his 5th UAE Derby winner.
