“He was very unlucky in the Victoria Cup earlier in the season. Four-year-olds have a good record in the Bunbury Cup and I feel he is the kind of horse that has plenty more progression in him, so there is a lot in his favour.
“William Buick is going to ride – he rode him in his last piece of work before Ascot, when he was only claimed by Godolphin at the last minute.
“He’s a fantastic rider who is on the crest of a wave at the moment. That said, Eddie has done nothing wrong on him and I’m sure he will get plenty more chances in the future.”
