DMbk59fXcAERIz5-1Dovils Date is a huge favourite at Pant Wilkin and yesterday’s win at Lingfield Park, his third in a row on the level and gained in typically game fashion, was his ninth since joining us as a three year old back in 2012.

Settled in second by David Probert, he travelled really nicely through the race and, sent upsides three furlongs from home, he hit the front half a furlong out and kept on really well to score.

He hadn’t been at his best in his last couple of runs over hurdles, over which his mark of 122 means he has to run in a higher grade, but hopefully he can win again over timber this winter and we could go jumping again next, though there are also plenty of options for him on the All-Weather in the coming months.  Congratulations to his owners in the Itsfuninit syndicate!
