Another solid run from Mick's horse. Original quote: "Michele Strogoff - We were delighted with the way he plugged on for third last time at Pontefract. Ran well for a long way that day and looked like getting swallowed up but stayed on in decent fashion. That was his first run for us and also his first run for 4 1/2 months so more to come. Has come out of the race well and we get in off the same mark. Up in 1m2f from a mile here so despite having tried further than a mile a few times as a stable we'll learn a lot fro this. Quicker ground here (soft last time) but that should help with the longer trip - goes without saying though any rain would help. Also and ease in grade will help and if getting the yardage then that will at least open up more races for him. Place claims"
