Eric ThDhwqqxxX0AAVcSMe Third is in a rich vein of form at present and the nine year old recorded his second win of the summer at Uttoxeter yesterday under a determined ride from Richard Patrick.

A winner over fences at Newton Abbot in June, Eric The Third had finished a close second just over a week ago over this course and distance, but there were plenty of nervous moments through the race, as he never really looked to be travelling.  However, Richard kept driving and, a length down at the last, he managed to galvanise the son of Mountain High to get up close home.

After a couple of quick runs, we’ll give him a couple of weeks now before looking for something else, most likely back over fences as his performance at Newton Abbot strongly hinted that there is more to come in that sphere.
