Even with my tip and my Disney Dollars on his back he still made it look easy coming from way back to run home an impressive one length winner. Knowing how form works here at HRP is pretty important and as i said his last two efforts whilst not seeing him in the top three were much better than they looked. The longer distances next year will suit her down to the ground and i expect her to make a nice KYO chance.

If you look outside the box you can see why this one ran so well although considering her form compared to some of the others it was somewhat of a surprise. She stayed on well for second though and even with the class system being so screwed up is clearly better than the grade she has been getting beaten in.

Came from a long way back to for third and her trainer will be thrilled she put her poor last effort behind her.

Stalked the lead but just whacked away in the end, a fair effort.
