Cap St Vincent MusselburghAn impressive winner at Ludlow just 11 days ago, Cap St Vincent showed he is a rapidly improving chaser with a bloodless success at Musselburgh yesterday under Alan Johns.

Raised 8lbs for his win on his previous start, the weight looked to make little difference to him as he travelled markedly well through the contest, jumping fluently.  Angled to the outside before the third-last, Alan brought him through to challenge two out and the pair were quickly clear after the last.

A half-brother to three useful performers and out of a half-sister to a Group 3 winner on the flat, he looks a useful prospect in the making and, though the handicapper will have his say once again, he should make a very bold bid for the hat-trick next time.
