“West On Marshall shines for Kellie Buckwell”

After five weeks off West On Marshall overcame a moderate jump from box five to win over 400m. The Phillip Jebb Country 6 saw Escapologist (box 2) and West On Trixie (box 4) jump equal favourites and as the boxes opened West On Trixie exploded to a four length lead. West On Marshall worked around rivals at the first turn to zoom into second position and sit outside of the leader. West On Marshall raced clear but Escapologist was in hot pursuit and finishing powerfully out wide on the track. West On Marshall dug deep to hang on and score by just over a length in a time of 22.74. He had been unplaced at his last six in a row and the freshen up has clearly helped him recapture winning form.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 3 Number 6 TOO SLIPPERY : Improved on a couple of unplaced efforts over 488m to win in a handy 22.74 over 400m.

Race 4 Number 8 BLING IT BLACK : Caught the eye with a fast finishing third over 400m.
