Light The City won well back on the flat at Southwell under Serena Brotherton.
"A desperately weak opener and a bloodless victory for LIGHT THE CITY, who translated the recent improvement he´d shown over hurdles on his return to the Flat. Meeting several out of form sorts and very nicely handicapped on the pick of his form, the 7yo had the race in the bag a long way out and only had be nursed home to score by a growing margin. Now successful in three of his last four outings (twice over hurdles), he´s clearly thriving at present and ought to have no problem following up at a similar lowly level next time. QUOTES: Ruth Carr, trainer of Light The City: Running over hurdles has sweetened him up and when he didn´t make his money at the sales last week I thought he was worth a go back on the Flat. After that we will have to get him out again soon. He´s still for sale and has the scope to win over fences."
