|Horse||HELDER THE PAINTER (JASON WHITING )|
|Finished||9th of 10|
A satisfactory effort from Helder The Painter when drifting back to last from the outside alley and never really getting a good crack at them. Was held up behind heels on the turn and had to change course on a couple of occasions, and by the time he got clear and balanced the race was well and truly over.
There is another Ratings 72+ Handicap over 1400 metres coming up at Ascot on Saturday March 19 and we are going to head there, and hopefully a better barrier draw will see us be able to take up a more forward position in running.
