TORIANO made it two wins from two starts at Lingfield this afternoon. He looks a horse who is definitely improving and he won nicely today. It would be great if he could go on and record a hat trick like his stable companion ICE SLICE did recently. The horses are all running well as SHADOW SPIRIT ran her best race to date by finishing a close third to hot favourite and well regarded FADILLAH at Nottingham today. Her performance was all the more credible as she did not like the ground in the straight but stuck to her task well.
Last night PRESS GANG also ran well to finish third at Leicester. He was only beaten just over length in a competitive looking handicap. He had a bad draw and did not get the clearest of runs in the final furlong so did very well to finish so close.
