Racing Summary
07 Apr Then we have First Of Fifth and at least there is something positive to say. He cost 5,000gns so there isn't much of him of course but he's neatly put together and well balanced. On the real positive side he's a good, active mover and he shows that off by looking like he's mentally mature and here to do business. Not clinging to the lad but pulling forward and showing some spark.
  • That's all very well but the horse still needs to know what's expected from it to compete. He gets out of the stalls ok but needs driving along to pick up and loses 5 lengths as the others go off in a line-of-four. They aren't very good so he manages to close on them downhill and pick off the shirksome Shadow Bay. He continues that progress as the leaders stall to various extents and battles to the finish with the experienced Gone Hunting who has 7lbs less with his apprentice aboard.
  • A good effort and believable he can rate just 70+ and win something early. Size and lack of scope will catch him out after that. A positive for his trainer in getting a usable cheap one but he still hasn't proved he can produce one ready to win FTO despite the effort here. Getting the horse competent is part of the readiness and pick-up bumbling ("What Me?, Now?", "Yes, YOU....") cost the debut win here. If First Of  Fifth had been trained by David Evans he would have won this by 3 lengths.
