Teal explained:”He’s a lovely horse. I trained his mommy (Charlotte Rosina), she had been a nice sprint mare. The boys set her to Mayson and he is the outcome.
“We always think he wants soft earth because his mother loved soft earth, but his very best shape is on the surface of the ground for some reason.
“We came with high hopes, so I was reading the stats and three-year-olds have a bad rep in this race, so that I was panicking then. But no, fair play, he’s put it correctly.”
