SHANDOZ stormed up the outside to stamp his authority in no uncertain terms in the Listed Unibet 3 Uniboosts A Day Floodlit Stakes at Kempton this afternoon.
A dual winner at Ascot in his 3YO season and after a year off the track SHANDOZ built on his delayed seasonal return to the track last month at Lingfield. Showing improvement today in the hands of David Egan they broke well from stall three, settled midfield until the home straight. Egan made his move and Shandoz responded with a striking turn of foot producing a sustained run down the outside. Cruising through to hit the front inside the final furlong and finishing well on top at the line, a clear one length ahead of Desert Fire from the Saeed bin Suroor yard.
Congratulations to Nurlan Bizakov and connections. Egan was full of praise for the son of Golden Horn who remains an exciting prospect with a Middle Eastern campaign in the spring a possible next step.
