“It was really good,” Baker said.

“We thought that we would finish midfield and that is where he was, but to be so close in a sprint home was really exciting.

“All the reports are really positive.

“For a horse that isn’t a great track worker – he only really does what he has to – his work has been really good and he has improved a lot.

“He has come good in the coat and I know that the team over there are really happy with him.

“I know that Murray has won this race with a couple of stayers before and hopefully he can do the job.

“Touch wood everything goes smoothly in the next few weeks.”
