18th Mar 2017 2nd 11/2 – Fight Commander – Oliver Sherwood Fontwell Park

Nice each-way call from Oliver. Original quote: “Fight Commander is a horse with ability, he had a consistent season as a novice over fences and was handicapped to the hilt as a result. He disappointed in his first two runs this season but was found to be dislocating his soft palate, he had an operation before his most recent run to correct this. He didn’t seem to try too hard on his first race after that procedure, which can happen, they sometimes need a run to realise that they can breathe properly again. Fight Commander has done really well since his last race and looks an absolute picture so hopefully he has gained some confidence from that, he is wearing first time blinkers and is back down to a sensible handicap mark.”
