Looksnowtlikebrian is an exciting young staying chaser in the making and he coped with the drop back in trip when winning narrowly at Ayr yesterday, providing Richard Johnson with his 150th winner of the season!
Settled in second, Looksnowtlikebrian failed to jump with much fluency and, though he travelled well through the contest, those mistakes looked like they might prove his undoing as he duelled with the eventual runner-up from the home bend all the way to the line. However, he definitely has a good engine and, despite losing ground over the fences, he had enough class to get the better of his main rival close home, following up his win at Ffos Las in December.
He’ll have plenty more schooling next week, but will be better suited when conditions are in his favour and he remains a progressive young chaser to follow. Congratulations to his owners Steve and Reg Botham!
