img_2394-2Dovils Date has been an absolute star for us over the years, and the Itsfuninit-owned seven year old appears to be better than ever this term at the age of seven, winning his second race within the space of seven days with another wide-margin success at Uttoxeter yesterday.

Once again ridden by our promising conditional jockey George Blackwell, who is excellent value for his 10lbs claim, Dovils Date was settled in the rear of the six-strong field, but made good headway on the home bend and, once sent on into the lead before the second last, quickly bounded clear to win in great style!

That was his sixth win since joining us as a three year old off the flat back in 2012, and he really does appear to be in the form of his life at present, clearly appreciating the step up to 2m4f on his last two starts, and off his highest-winning mark yesterday.

The handicapper has already put him up to a mark of 125, so we may now look to revert to the flat, as in his current vein of form I am confident we can find a race for him off his mark of 70.
