GILGAMESH WINS IMPRESSIVELY
Gilgamesh stormed to victory beneath the lights at Wolverhampton last night under Jamie Spencer.
He sat well off a frenetic pace and made up ground easily turning into the home straight to win a shade cosily. Although it was only in a relatively weak race for the grade, he couldn’t have been more impressive and looks to have a bright future. It’s always a privilege to train for the Niarchos Family, especially a home bred like Gilgamesh. I am very much looking forward to planning his season ahead.
Finishing second, Jack the Truth took a huge step forward from his debut, as many of my horses do. I like them to improve race to race, especially early on in their careers. It won’t be long before we see him in the winners’ enclosure.
Equally Road to Dubai and Essential pleased me with their runs this week, they will both improve as the year progresses. I have been delighted with the start to the season with Gilgamesh being our second winner following Hamelin’s valuable win last week. The horses seem healthy and happy, long may it last.
