Author completes trilogy
on 03 February 2018

Author's Dream delighted connections when completing a hat trick at Lingfield this afternoon. 

Contrary to his previous wins, the 5yo gelding found himself at the rear of the field where he was content to stay for most of the race. The race was run at a decent enough pace, but jockey Martin Harley knew that he needed to make up some ground on the leaders, to give himself a chance of winning. He made a very inspired and decisive move over 3f out and swept around the field to take up the running. He caught his rivals on the hop and had them all off the bridle heading into the home straight. A couple of challengers came with a run but none got close enough to trouble Author's Dream. 

This was a superb effort from this son of Authorized who has really found his feet this year. He took time to grow into his frame and was quite weak as a youngster. Thankfully his patient owners, Mr and Mrs Carl Conroy, have given him time and he is now repaying them. Today's victory was won off a mark of 75 - 18lbs higher than his first win in December. 

The horses are all in good form, with the few runners we have had all giving good accounts of themselves. The 2yos are progressing nicely and the older horses are all coming back into work and look fantastic following their winter break.
