An exuberant performance from our 10 year old grey who carried top weight and gave away a fair few years to his rivals to finish a well earned 3rd at Exeter.
The early season report at the yard owner's day on Sunday was that the former pointer was still full of energy at home and we might just be coming down to a handicap mark he can compete from and such was the case.
Sent off the 25/1 outsider of 7 jockey Charlie Price was handy throughout on the preferable firm ground. A good round of jumping on the second circuit saw our runner outjump many of his rivals and take a 4 length lead into the home straight.
Creadan Grae stuck on well to see out the 2m 4f trip and pick up some nice prize money and back up the trainer's thoughts that an improved run was due.
A huge thanks to the team for supporting on the long trip South.
