Churchill Paddock

Son Of Churchill Appreciates Step Up In Trip

A step up in trip proved just the trick for Lawful Command (2g Churchill - Blue Geranium, by Dansili), who got off the mark over seven furlongs at Yarmouth on Monday.

Previously narrowly beaten over six furlongs, Brian Meehan’s charge was ridden by Louis Steward for the first time on Monday and was positioned close to the pace throughout. Pushed along from two furlongs out, he led from 110 yards out and kept on well to win by half a length.

Bred by Miss KJ Keir, Lawful Command is owned by Family Amusements Ltd and D Simmonds.
