33c8358a-9c6d-4746-9425-3348333a11b6A ready winner over hurdles at Ffos Las last week, Briac looked likely to take all the beating switched to fences off the same mark at Sedgefield yesterday and so it proved, as he won impressively on just his second outing over the larger obstacles under a well-judged ride from Alan Johns.

Held up, he travelled very well and, making his ground before the home bend, he was soon in front and kept on strongly for a wide-margin success.

The handicapper will now have his say, but he looks to be improving and hopefully he can make a very bold bid for the hat-trick next time, which could come in the handicap hurdle back over two miles and Sandown Park in June, a race he won last year.  Congratulations to his owner Olly Harris!
