LANKARAN comes from last to first, getting up in the closing stages to narrowly land the Unibet New Instant Roulette Handicap.
Bouncing back to winning ways, Lankaran returns to form returning to the All-Weather akin to his victory in April at Wolverhampton, having been beaten at odds on last time out at Brighton. On this occasion he left more to do having travelled the majority of the course and distance at rear of the field. Breaking from stall 6 under Jack Mitchell, Lankaran settled in behind the rest of the contenders until inside the final 2 furlongs, where he made headway, running on well as he picked his way through the field up along the inside. Getting up inside the last furlong along the rail, Lankaran closed the gap, wearing down the favourite in the final stride and denying Bonneval the win as they hit the line.
Congratulations to winning owner Nurlan Bizakov and the team. The victory brings Lankaran’s winning tally to two from four runs. A 50% return is a strong statistic to hold to the greys 3YO campaign and we look forward to what more the son of Kendargent has to show this season.
