Timeform rated it yet another career best p88+, saying: "Is quickly going places as a stayer and relished the step up to 2m after just 7 days off, defying a penalty with loads in hand, looking a good thing to rack up the hat-trick in this sort of form; held up, travelled well, headway over 2f out, led over 1f out, kept on well, had plenty in hand; will remain of plenty of interest.”
Syndicate manager Tim says: "Well done to his owners on his third career win - he did it with authority!"
