Spirit Of Zebedee Takes Advantage Of Mark
Spirit Of Zebedee has appealed as a horse ahead of his mark for a little while now and thankfully capitalised on it at Catterick on Tuesday. Having lost his form inn the early part of the year we found that he required a breathing operation. As is sometimes the case following such an operation he has taken a few runs to regain his confidence. Back at his beloved Catterick he hit top form again though.
The early pace in the race was quite frenetic and Jason Hart just sat off it on Spirit Of Zebedee who always travelled nicely. Turning for home he closed in on the leaders and hit the front just over a furlong out. He had to be kept up to his work in the closing stages but was always just doing enough. Hopefully now that he has got his head back in front he can land another sprint in the near future.
