I didn’t get around to writing up this blog post on dear old Vicente’s splendid Scottish National win because of college assignments. So here it is now everyone. 🙂
Paul Nicholls’ Vicente stormed to victory at 14-1 with Sam Twiston-Davies at Ayr. Alvarado made a surging finish to get second while Seeyouatmidnight finished in third position with Royale Knight in fourth and Vyta Du Roc in fifth.
“It was a brilliant result. You try all season to win these big races and a few of them have eluded us but that was a special moment. That was one of Sam’s best ever rides, I’d say. He’s learning all the time and he’s a fantastic guy. This has been the target for Vicente all season. I thought Cheltenham would do him good and you don’t win these races without a prep run.”
I won a bit of money on my dear old friend Alvarado so that was good. 🙂
Well done Vicente and all concerned! 🙂 And of course Alvarado and all concerned! 🙂
