A smart performance from the Lope De Vega colt, a first in handicap company. Partnered today with the talented Andrea Atzeni, the pair travelled strongly to land the spoils going away in the Scottish Trophy Handicap at Hamilton.

Breaking well from stall four the three-year-old took up a prominent position in the early stages. Andrea Atzeni putting in a professional performance, biding his time to make his move at the opportune moment. Making a challenge from over four furlongs out GLAM DE VEGA soon cruised through to take up the running at the two-furlong marker. Justifying favouritism in style this afternoon as he was always doing enough.

Congratulations to owner Sheikh Mohammed Obaid Al Maktoum whose son of Lope De Vega continued winning ways in a pleasing fashion in his handicap debut this afternoon. The dam, Glamorous Approach, stayed 1mile 6 furlongs so there are plenty of options going forward.
