Son Of Milan Makes All To Maiden Hurdle Victory

A step up in trip saw San Giovanni (6g Milan - Down By The Sea, by Fourstars Allstar) get off the mark over hurdles at Worcester on Saturday.

Placed on two of his previous four starts for Harry Fry, he was sent off second favourite for the maiden hurdle over two and a half miles and was ridden to make all by Nick Scholfield. Pushed along from two out, he boasted a two length advantage at the final flight and kept on strongly to score by four lengths.

Owned by the GDM Partnership and bred by Jerry Russell, San Giovanni is one of three winners by Milan out of Down By The Sea.
