BAL DE RIO wins at Newcastle

Bal De Rio

BAL DE RIO enjoyed a change back to the flat when holding on gamely to take the extended two-mile Handicap on the all weather at Newcastle yesterday.

Ben Robinson partnered Phil and Julie Martin’s five-year-old who was following up five placed efforts over hurdles.

Settled towards the rear of the field he travelled well throughout, creeping closer with over a mile still left to run. Making good progress three furlongs from home, he got a nice gap on the inside to take up the running with less than a quarter mile to run. He battled gamely in the final furlong to hold on by a neck.
