Sheikh Hamdan's colt has run with credit this season and it is great to get his head back in front.

He made every yard of the running under Graham Lee, battling gamely to beat Free Wheeling by a neck.

Roger said: "He has been running well without winning so this was a good opportunity for him.

"It was a decent enough performance under a penalty and giving weight to older horses. I'd say we'll look at a Listed race again next."
