It was good to see San Cassiano win at Beverley under top amatuer rider, Serena Brotherton. A combination of blinkers, return to 1.2f, a career low handicap mark and good ground saw Stanley just hold on having been several lengths clear turning for home.
"This was a well-run handicap. SAN CASSIANO had plenty of use made of him before grabbing the outright lead with over half a mile to run and kicking clear. He built up a big enough advantage that even though he tired badly in the closing stages he had enough in hand to just last home."
