Zoffany Bay looks a progressive individual and, after two good placed efforts, he got back to winning ways on his fifth start since joining us with an impressive, wide-margin success at Brighton under Silvestre de Sousa.
Quickly away, Silvestre settled him on the rails, tracking the leaders, before making his move approaching the three-furlong pole. Travelling strongly into the lead, the race was never in doubt from there and he looked good value for the winning margin of 7 lengths.
The handicapper is likely to take action, but we may well look to turn him out again quickly under a penalty before he is re-assessed, as he should have a very strong chance of following up. Congratulations to his owners Margaret and Ian Kidger and Geoffrey Bishop!
