e finally got Chappy in a race on some proper soft ground and he showed a solo outing to Ayr on Saturday night was worth it by making all under Jamie Gormley.
"This moderate 7f handicap produced another close finish. CHAPLIN BAY, who had not scored since March 2018, was 24lb lower as a result and had form on soft ground. He made the running and dug really deep to hold off the favourite. The return to testing ground helped."

"I didn't want to be in front, but CHAPLIN BAY settled and he enjoyed the ground. He really stuck his neck out."
