Orpsie Boy showed his younger rivals a clean pair of heels when running away with the 7f handicap at Thirsk. Our 11yo gelding has not had the ground or draw in favour of late but showed he's still got ability winning by over 3 and a half lengths.
" A soundly run contest which was won in emphatic style by the veteran ORPSIE BOY, who had looked on the decline in his two previous starts this season but he bounced back to form in no uncertain terms here. He travelled strongly off the pace and was the last of these to come off the bridle before picking up strongly down the middle of the track to score in smart style. This was run to suit but this 11yo clearly still has plenty to offer"
