Scott Dixon – Pearl Noir 2nd Feb 2017 3rd 12/1 – Southwell

Scott’s horse plugged on well to take third. Original quote: “Pearl Noir – Seems to be slowly coming to the boil again and ran a much better race here last time over 6f (4th of 11). Down 2lbs for that and we take off another 7lbs with the jockey’s claim. Step up in trip is fine and been freshened-up with a month off. The favourite might be hard to beat, but we look to be a decent each-way price.”
