Mark followed up his Ayr win with another success at Ripon this time over 6f. Held up on the rail by Jack, the loose horse made some daylight, and the pair stayed on well to win by three quarters of a length
"A useful 3yo handicap, but it instantly became more winnable when short-priced favourite Dominus stumbled and unseated his rider leaving the stalls. MARK'S CHOICE had won two of his last three, both 5f, with the beaten run in between coming over this trip on slow ground, so he had a bit to prove up 4lb. However, he overcame a slow start and racing keenly to produce a strong finish and cause a bit of a surprise. He's clearly most progressive and, with a trainer who knows what she's doing, could yet progress further still."
