We turned Vic out quickly at Redcar after his Newcastle win and he didn;t disappoint! He seems to have eventually grown up and did it nicely under Jimmy.
"A fair handicap that saw the bang in-form VICTOIRE DE LYPHAR defy a double penalty and complete the hat-trick, picking up well and asserting under hands and heels riding. Versatile with regards to ground, he was reappearing just two days after his most recent win and is clearly thriving, but it seems likely he´ll be given a break now. QUOTES: Ruth Carr, trainer of Victoire De Lyphar: He´s a different horse this year, it´s taken a long time to come round to my way of doing things andhe´s enjoying the job - he´s always had loads of ability but he used to do everything at 100 miles an hour. A straight seven furlongs seems to suit him. He´s going to go up in the weights and he´ll have a bit of a break now. "
