Dylan Thomas strikes Gold at Chester

Goldoni (3g Dylan Thomas-Lasso, by Indian Ridge), winner of Epsom’s Investec Derby Trial in April, enjoyed a Listed success for Dylan Thomas at Chester on Saturday. Andrew Balding’s charge, who was bred by Marston Stud, took the Listed Minstrell Recruitment Stand cup in stylish fashion under David Probert. “Some people knocked his win at Epsom because of the soft ground, but he’s run two good races since and did nothing wrong there,” Balding’s wife Anna Lisa told www.racingpost.com
