Winning trainer Kiaran McLaughlin said, "He's
turned out to be a good horse. Hopefully, we can take him over to Dubai
for either the Godolphin Mile or the World Cup. It worked out well that
we didn't have anyone pressuring us. Midnight Lute is a very nice horse.
We were lucky there was no one to take us on. The pace wasn't very fast
for him. The rider had a double handful. He had so much horse. Once
Midnight Lute got to us and we went on, I thought we had him."
