Bradley said: "The horse has never been as well this season and the ground was just soft enough for him to be fully effective. It was a brave performance to defy 12 stone."
Brooks said: "The horse is in everywhere - Cheltenham, Liverpool, Haydock and Leopardstown. He will run wherever the ground is suitable, but I hope never again on good to firm going. I believed we had Couldnt Be Better back to his best, but you never know particularly with one which has a repeated bleeding problem."
Danoli may still run in the the Gold Cup despite Sunday's fall at Leopardstown. He runs next in the Hennessy Gold Cup at Leopardstown on 2 February. The other Festival option for Danoli is the Arkle Trophy. His trainer, Tom Foley, has ruled out the Sun Alliance Chase.
