What a fantastic days racing we had yesterday. The day began with the best possible start as Gracious John made all to win a listed race at Lingfield under Fran Berry. He was strongly challenged throughout the final furlong but he stuck his head down and really fought for it to just hold on by a short head! He will be aimed for the sprint final at the All-Weather Championships where he will try and go one better than his second place last year.
A few races later the lovely Sea Fox ran a big race to finish 3rd under Edward Greatrex. Half a furlong out it looked like he was going to win but the winning line just came a stride too late and two finishers joined him just before the line. Nevertheless it was a great run.
Meanwhile at Wolverhampton the improving & consistent Joegogo won his fourth race of the AW campaign under Gabriele Malune. It was great to get another winner for Wayne Clifford of Bathwick Tyres who sponsors the yard.
To finish a great days racing Satchville Flyer came a good 2nd under Robert Winston. He was dropping back in trip and settled a lot better.
