Celsius makes it three and Medalla wins too

Celsius made it three wins and a second inside 35 days when taking a 5f handicap at Doncaster on Thursday. This progressive sprinter got up late in the day under Ben Curtis having shown a good turn of foot to make up plenty of ground.

Medalla De Oro was dropping back in distance after a couple of disappointing runs over 1m4f and took a ten-furlong handicap under Jack Mitchell at Chester. Owned by the Rogue Gallery Syndicate, Medalla De Oro made every yard of the running and held on gamely to win by half a length.

Tom said: "It's great that the horses are hitting some good form at a busy time. Celsius has really got his act together and looks a lovely sprinter in the making. We'll freshen him up now and look at the 5f three-year-old handicap at Glorious Goodwood.

"I'm pleased to see Medalla back to winning ways. A turning track and easy lead played right into his hands."
