Briac showed notable improvement for a step up in trip at Ffos Las yesterday, winning impressively on his third start since joining us…and in the race we sponsored!

Held up in the early stages, he travelled noticeably well throughout and, though I was worried about the longer trip on what was very soft ground, he certainly appeared to enjoy the extra emphasis on stamina, keeping on strongly to score by nine lengths in the hands of Alan Johns.

We’ll have to see what the handicapper does to his mark, but in the meantime we will look to give him a couple of entries over fences next week, as he could run without a penalty and hopefully he can follow up before he is re-assessed.  Congratulations to his owner Olly Harris!
