Balgair on top in Yarmouth feature

The son of Foxwedge, who runs in the colours of Gill Habershon-Butcher, has now won three times since joining us and looks to have improved again from four to five.

He was a little fresh in the early stages but jockey Luke Morris soon had him settled at the rear of the field. He cruised up as they approached the closing stages with Luke only asking him for his effort as the entered the final furlong.

The eventual second Glory Awaits had got first run but Balgair picked up well and finished strongly to get up on the line - winning by a nose.

Tom said: "Luke has given him a lovely ride - he needs settling and producing late and he did just that. He is  a real yard favourite and it's great to see him start his season with a win."
