“Cieren rode a peach – a cool little dude. I think he’s got a bit of a future,” quipped Teal.
“I can’t put it into words,” said Fallon.
Son of six-time champion Flat jockey Kieren Fallon, Cieren added: “I’m speechless! I was just a passenger on a very good horse.
“There’s a lot of pressure going into a Group 1. I spoke to my dad beforehand and he said keep it simple – keep him travelling coming up to the dip – and let him go.”
