First Fandango has done really well so far this season for his new connections, WRB Racing 40 & Premier Chance Racing, and after placings at Cheltenham and Kempton in valuable contests he managed to get his head in front at Leicester on Monday under A P McCoy.

He has undoubtedly benefited from the step up to 2m5f the last twice and his long-term objectives will include either the Pertemps Final or the Martin Pipe conditional jockeys race at Cheltenham in March.
