Concorde Flies To The Finish

Royal Concorde put his novice hurdle form behind him when finishing a good third at Plumpton today.  A first time tongue tie seemed to make all the difference on his handicap debut over 2 miles.  Ridden by Tom Garner he was encouraged from flag fall to take a prominent part.  Once in the leading three he galloped strongly and turning for home he had his nose in front.  One of four horses almost level over the final flight, he could find no extra but battled on gamely to hold onto third place, beaten just 2 and a half lengths by the winner.  This was a pleasant change of fortunes for his patient owner.
