DfwQ8WOX4AAjDBREric The Third is in the form of his life and the nine year old recorded his third win from seven starts since joining us earlier in the year when bolting up at Newton Abbot yesterday under Alan Johns.

Runner-up at Cartmel on his previous outing and a winner at Newton Abbot earlier in the summer (pictured right), he looked an improved performer stepped up beyond 2m4f for the first time in his career, jumping and travelling strongly before putting the race to bed in great style.

The handicapper will have his say on Tuesday and we may look to enter him up for next week under a penalty, but there is also the option of going back over hurdles, as his win at Uttoxeter in July came over 2m and there is definite scope for him to better that over a longer trip.
