Meshardal followed up his Catterick win with another good performance in the first division of the 6f handicap at Thirsk's opening meeting of the year.
"The first division of a fair sprint handicap. MESHARDAL has done really well in the last year or so, and this made it four wins and four seconds from eight starts. His rating has risen 20lb in that time and the straightforward way he took this suggests he might not have finished his progress yet."
