Proceed at Speed finds best form for Thompson

Noted fast beginner Proceed at Speed produced a terrific performance in today’s Get Your Quaddie On Grade 6 over 509m. The son of Lochinvar Marlow sped out of box four and crossed favourite Princess Briana (box one) at the first turn. Mental Burst had begun well from box eight along with outsider Missoni (box five). Entering the back straight the Jen Thompson trained Proceed at Speed had dashed away, setting up a five length lead over Missoni and Mental Burst and favourite Princess Briana looked to be struggling. Proceed At Speed is not known for his strength at the end of 509m but he found the line strongly, winning by four lengths in 29.95. Mental Burst finished second ahead of outsider White Star who made up many lengths for third. It was only Proceed At Speed’s fourth victory from 75 career starts.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 2 Number 3 LAYTOWN : Caught the eye out wide when a fast finishing fourth at huge odds.

Race 3 Number 3 JUNKYARD SARGE : Flew out and led throughout to win by a whopping nine lengths.
