Rigoletto (Zoffany) wins the ‘ Daily Racing Specials At 188Bet Handicap’ (Cl 4) at Newmarket for trainer Luca Cumani and owner Simon Capon, making it a treble of winners on the day for EBS.
Having shed his maiden tag at just the second time of asking at Yarmouth last time out, Rigoletto entered handicap company here in what looked a hot contest.
Ridden by Adam Kirby, the colt was held up through the early stages, before making smooth headway and quickening impressively to win by 1/2 a length. This looked like a comfortable victory and there is surely much more improvement to come from this progressive horse.
Rigoletto was purchased for €40,000 at the 2016 BBAG yearling sale.
