A good performance from Oreo to win at Pontefract from an outside draw. Jack tracked accross, settled in behind the strong pace and pulled wide up the straight to win by 3 1/2 lengths.
"Race distance increased 8yds. A fair sprint handicap. They went a strong pace and it paid to be ridden more patiently. ORIENTAL SPLENDOUR finished a close second in this race off 1lb lower last year. He was waited with in behind the strong tempo from an awkward draw and came storming through to win easily more towards the near side in the straight."
