Anyway Well done Somerset ! Good call.
I couldnt believe how well he was travelling when taking it up, very similar to the ride Fehily got on Rocky Creek in 2014, the horse pulling its way into the lead a fair way out.
I dont think he would've beaten the winner regardless of whether his challenge had been timed later but he's ran a great race as a second season chaser.
In saying all of that I wouldnt be rushing to back him for next years race given the expected hike in the weights he's likely to get. Onwards to look at the Irish and Scottish Nationals!
