Son Of Ocovango Maintains Perfect Chase Record
Steady The Ship (6g Ocovango - Vinnie’s Princess, by Vinnie Roe) made it two from two over fences when making all at Southwell on Monday.
Successful over course and distance last month, Jonjo O’Neill’s charge was sent off second favourite under Jonjo O’Neill Junior. Shaken up to draw clear from three out, he was ridden out on the run-in to deny the favourite Capricia (Mahler) by a length and a half, the pair finishing clear of the field
Owned by Pitch Racing, Steady The Ship was bred by Martin Ryan out of a half-sister to Grade 1 Challow Novices’ Hurdle victor Backspin (Flemensfirth).
