A very well-bred five year old, Cap St Vincent looks a progressive young chaser in the making, getting off the mark at the second time of asking over the larger obstacles at Ludlow yesterday in the manner of a well-handicapped horse.
The son of Muhtathir joined us at the beginning of the year after and, having shown some promise over hurdles in the spring, the penny looks like it is beginning to drop with him now, as he travelled very well through the contest yesterday under Alan Johns before taking up the running at the third-last. Though he made a bad mistake there, he quickly regained his momentum, coming clear after the last to score by eight lengths.
He looks to have plenty more to offer in this sphere and hopefully he will make a bold bid to follow up this win. Congratulations to his owners Brian and Wayne Jones!
