LLEYTON RETURNS TO THE SCENE OF HIS LATEST DEMOLITION.
Lleyton turned nine years old last Friday, and on what was his 45th start, which includes eight flat turf runs, six on the all weather, 25 hurdles races, four runs over fences, and even a point to point race, he turned in a lifetime best, winning easily,over this course and distance he once again races over, of one mile and six furlongs, at Wolverhampton eight days ago.
Since joining us in October, becoming the fourth different yard that Lleyton has run out of, he has run at Wolverhampton three times, winning off 57 in October. On his return there 61 days later, and stepping up to an extended two miles, he didn't have the run of the race, having to challenge from a wide position, but still finishing second. He is only 4lb higher this time for his latest win, but with there only being five opponents, a fast pace which would aid his cause isn't guaranteed.The race is at 5.20.pm, and the promising Oliver Stammers retains the ride.
Good luck to the connections, Pauline and Camilla Southerington.
