Exciting win by our 4YO Danehill Express gelding Not To Be Mist on Saturday at Ascot in the Westspeed Platinum Series heat over 1400 metres. As the field approached the turn, he didn’t seem to be travelling like a winner and was still in eighth position 400 metres out. He was well ridden by William Pike who seized the initiative at the 200 metre pole by taking him to the rails to find clear air. He has hit the line strongly running the fastest last 400 metres.
Trainer Adam Durrant has managed this progressive galloper well, with his record now standing at 7 starts for 4 wins and a third.
