Red Anchor (stable name Ginger) showed a return to form today when finishing 3rd in a handicap chase at Lingfield. After his problems last season it was great to see him racing with enthusiasm and attacking his jumps again. Ridden by Jamie Moore, he set off third of the field of four runners in the 2 and a half mile event. He moved up into second going out on the final circuit and held this position until entering the home straight where he was challenged for the position. His lack of a recent run began to tell, but he continued gamely to hold on to his third place, just 16 lengths behind the easy winner, and demonstrate that he is back to his old self, putting a smile on the faces of all his connections.
