“He’s a very uncomplicated horse. Getting him into the right rhythm is the key.
“It was a bit hard to judge – but coming towards the line I did have a quick look across to see if we were clear or not – and luckily enough we were a couple of lengths clear.
“All credit to the horse he deserved a big one,” added Stott.
“We have an entry at Ascot, and we’ll discuss that – for now we’ll enjoy the moment,” added Ryan.
