BLACK BLAST was unfancied in the Handicap over 1200 metres at Ascot on Saturday.

Troy Turner rode a very patient race on the Blackfriars gelding, settling him well off the pace behind the pacemaker Inok. On the home turn the field bunched; Troy moved BLACK BLAST smoothly into contention, and the horse responded well, sprinting past his rivals to win by an easy 1 1/4 lengths.

Peter was delighted with BLACK BLAST’s performance, and predicts a good prep for this well-bred 5 year old gelding.
