Son Of Sans Frontieres Wins On Chase Debut
Pres (5g Sans Frontieres - Present Company, by Presenting) made all to make a winning chase debut at Lingfield on Tuesday.
Twice placed in point-to-points, the Chris Gordon-trained chestnut was sent off favourite for the Novices’ Handicap Chase over three miles. He jumped well throughout under Leighton Aspell and was pushed along from the third last. Ridden from the final fence, he stayed on well to win by two lengths.
Speaking after the race, the winning trainer said, “Pres jumped brilliantly. I'd like to think there might be improvement, as it was his first run over fences and he's only five.”
Owned by the Pres Partnership, the son of Beeches Stud sire Sans Frontieres was bred by G Merrigan out of point-to-point winner Present Company.
