Cardigan Bay wins on the third time of asking at Fontwell, delighting Johnny as it was his first ride and win in The Boss' colours. She has always worked well at home and has improved with both her starts in bumpers at Hexham and Worcester and we fully expected a good run from her to finish in the place money if she continued to improve. She travelled strongly through the race, settling well in behind and I was extremely pleased to see she didn't get worked up by the Keighley horse trying to run out on the first turn and almost taking her out. She was impressive in the way she pulled clear from the rest of the field, winning by 7 lengths. She is progressive and I look forward to seeing what she can do over hurdles.
