Another second!! After Cyds oh so brave effort at Stratford on Sunday, it was Mattakings turn to return to the runner up spot yesterday. We applied the blinkers, and rode him from the front and this went exactly to plan until a horse that had been off for a year and was backed in from 20-1 to 9-2 loomed large between the second last and the last and went on to beat our boy by 6 lengths with 10 lengths back to the third. Matty was really unfortunate to run into such a well handicapped horse but on paper his turn should come soon!! Lets hope so!!
