We had that doubt in our thoughts.
“Mentally, he is at all times been strong-willed and he retains himself match, I suppose we knew that after profitable his maiden (at Windsor). He by no means actually did any critical work earlier than the Derby, or after it.
“He clearly learnt rather a lot at Windsor, in any other case he wouldn’t have received the Dante the best way he did.
“The load-for-age concession is useful, though we’re a comparatively immature three-year-old.
