Light Burst - Nov 19
He ran really well to finish third. The draw was always going to pose a problem and he was having his first run in 2 months - it was also a major step up in class considering he had won his last two starts in a 0-65 company.
In truth, Shane was unable to get the cover he wanted and he did run a little free. He still travelled well and, momentarily, looked set to finish second to the downgraded Kingscroft. It was a pleasing return.
He will run again at Kempton on Thursday and, with Shane committed to Prime Exhibt, Andrea Atzeni will step in for the ride. He will improve for the run, the race at Kempton doesn't look any harder, and he has won over the trip (a mile).
Hopefully, he will be luckier with the draw. At least the run at Wolverhampton shows that he can win off his mark of 80.
