McVicar and I’m Dapper Too finished 2nd and 4th respectively at Southwell today. McVicar has continued to perform well after his long lay-off and looked like he was going to win at about 1 furlong out only to be overhauled by the winner near the end of the race. I’m Dapper Too had a good first run of his season to finish 4th. He was always going to need the run but he showed promise and should go on to perform well when he starts on the turf.
In race comments for McVicar: Tracked leaders, headway over 3f out, ridden to lead well over 1f out, driven entering final furlong, headed and no extra last 100yds.
In race comments for IDT: In touch on inner, not much room and lost place well over 3f out, ridden over 2f out, kept on under pressure final furlong.
