Hestina makes it two wins on the spin for Dan Skelton and owner Barbara Hester.
Ridden by Harry Skelton the progressive filly was keen in the early stages but when asked the question she readily closed the gap on the leader who had pulled well clear of the field. Despite making some jumping errors Hestina showed a touch of class on the run in and put the race to bed after the last to win by two lengths.
After the race trainer Dan Skelton said ”Hestina is going the right way on good ground now. She went off favourite for a Listed race at Aintree last December but hated the softer ground. I will give her a month in a field now to freshen her up and come back to try and get her some cheap black type in one of the Listed races at the end of the summer ”.
