Winning Trainer: Robert Heathcote (Racing Manager Melanie Sharpe interviewed)

Thoughts on the win:  "Amazing. It's been such a stressful couple of weeks and Rob's (Heathcote) is up in Rocky with his nice horse Emerald. I'm just so thrilled for the owners today to get this win. It was a lovely ride, three deep and he was patient. It was beautiful."

Thoughts on Prince Of Boom: "The pure will and determination of this horse, what he's done is unreal. 

"He's just a dream boat to be honest. He's never, ever been a worry at all. He's just so cruisy and lovely. We just adore him."

Thanking connections: "A big shout out to Adrenalin for believing in us and keeping the faith. They're a good bunch of guys and we're so thrilled to train for them. We're just so happy for them and for this horse as well and what he's been through."

Winning Jockey: James Orman

Thoughts in run: "I didn't want to burn him just to get to the fence when I'm coming off anyway."

"I was happy. It's not good to be three deep but it didn't really worry me in that circumstance because I wanted to get out wide anyway, but it was a good win.

Thoughts on the line: "He was always there, but I just thought I've got beat right on the line, but I was lucky I had my head down."

Thoughts on Prince Of Boom: "He's a nice horse. He's come back back good from his breathing issue."
