Anthony Bromley commented: "He’s been bought for an established client of Nicky Henderson’s. The time of his Borris House win was excellent and he’s a fine stamp of a horse. We thought the female side of the pedigree was good and we really like the sire."
Cormac Farrell, who bought the horse for €45,000 at the 2020 Derby Sale, added: "It’s a great result and I’m delighted to see him go to a top home as he’s a very good horse."
