O Maonlai wins the Sir Peter O’Sullevan Memorial Handicap Chase impressively for Tom George and owner Colin Perry.
Given a confident ride by Adrien Heskin, the gelding by Oscar jumped impeccably, cruising into the race, eventually powering clear after the last to win by 5 lengths.
After the race George stated ” It was a great ride from Adrian because if you ride him too close to the pace he´s too keen and he can lose interest if you drop him out. Today was the plan and he goes well fresh. This is his type of track”
A private purchase by EBS, O Maonlai has now won twice for his connections and will hopefully be aimed at loftier targets later in the season.
