Crimewave gets 2020 off to a flyer
Owned by the Rogues Gallery Syndicate, the son of Teofilo was unlucky not to win last season but made no mistake this time, winning well under Jack Mitchell.
He is a horse who likes to find trouble so Lingfield's tight turns suited him well and Jack was able to get plenty of cover.
Crimewave travelled well in behind and was full of running when turning for home. He needed the gaps to come but luckily they did and he picked up well to win convincingly by a length and a quarter.
Tom said: "It's always great to get a win early in the year and this horse really deserved it. He has been knocking on the door without doing a lot wrong. The track has suited him well and Jack has given him a great ride."
