Trainer Graham Motion said, "I am really thrilled. I wanted to see exactly where he was, and I think today he showed that he is back where he was. It was also a lot to ask Jeremy (Rose) to ride him cold turkey. He probably needs 1 1/2 miles and a quick pace in front of him, but then, that's almost always been the case. When he doesn't run his race, there is usually no pace in the race. Our goal is to run in the Sword Dancer next. We would love to win another Grade 1 with him."
