A good third on his debut for us at Huntingdon just ten days ago, Landsman stepped up on that effort with a fine front-running performance to win impressively at Musselburgh yesterday under Alan Johns.
Sent straight into the lead, he raced enthusiastically and jumped fluently throughout. He had most of his rivals off the bridle before the home straight and kept on strongly to record a facile success.
The six year old was a useful performer on the flat in Ireland prior to being purchased at the Tattersalls Horses in Training Sale in October and looks to have a very bright future over timber. He’ll have another run in novice company, but looking ahead looks the ideal type to run in some of the valuable handicap hurdles this summer. Congratulations to his owner David Fox!
