Got the job done with few, if any jumping issues, but he has ended up winning with nothing in hand which would imply that the superstar tags are wide of the mark. Perhaps he might be a little better dropped in trip.

KB, Ruby's comments afterwards suggest the opposite. He was saying he's a Gold Cup horse.
I think he may just idle once he gets in front and may have more left in the tank than it looks

Not surprised. Given the choice they always say they are idling. Always happy to take the totally opposite view to Walsh. Mullins was talking about the Champion Hurdle. I would be amazed if he ended up as a Gold Cup horse, at the moment he isn't good enough even if he got the trip. He had none of the problems people envisaged and only just won. Proper Grade 1 opposition and he would have got beat.

He doesn't do a thing when he gets the lead.
