“Spring Jester delivers for Rapt In Racing Syndicate”

The rank outsider of tonight’s Elder’s Insurance Grade 4 over 490m was taken out by 16/1 pop Spring Jester. Prepared out of Nambeelup by Darren Rowe, the son of Spring Gun (box 4) began like a rocket and found the fence at the first turn. Cosmic Luck (box 8), Oakland Raider (box 6) and Bago Balleo (box 3) all showed early pace but raced tightly, allowing Spring Gun to establish a three length lead. Race favourite Charlie Boy made a mid race move to work into second position and try and reel in his less fancied rival. Spring Jester found plenty in the run home though and scored by 2.50 lengths over Charlie Boy in 27.90. Another two lengths away in third spot was Arlo who ran on well after missing the start. Spring Jester is raced by the Greg Dwyer managed Rapt In Racing Syndicate and has now started 43 times for 8 wins and 9 minor placings.
