Well It Worked!

Saturday's trip to the hunt (see previous post) did the trick as Red Anchor looked happy in himself and ran out the comfortable winner of the three and a quarter mile handicap chase at Plumpton today.  He was calm in the parade ring and then set off prominently in the race, under in form claimer Thomas Garner.

The race favourite made the running and Thomas kept Red Anchor well in touch in second place.  He jumped well and going out on the final circuit he was asked for an effort to close the gap.  He moved alongside in the back straight and seemed to be going the better when the favourite blundered and unseated his rider at the open ditch.  This left Red Anchor well clear and he just needed to be kept going and make sure of his jumps over the last two fences, before being eased approaching the line.

Linda's good day continued when Kayflin also put her recent disappointing run behind her when finishing third in the closing handicap hurdle.
