Southwell double to get 2024 off to a flyer
Owned by the Rogues Gallery, Big Zou had placed on both his previous starts and came from the rear to win by just over a length under Rab Havlin.
Jack Mitchell was aboard Carroll House Racing's Character Testing who was aiming to secure that elusive win having been second on four of his starts to date.
Victory this time was straightforward and he was always well positioned close to the speed. He hit the front with two furlongs to go and went on to score by two lengths.
Tom said :"We hoped both had very strong chances and they have done it nicely. The are two progressive 3yos with nice profiles -they have scope to go on from here."
