Fazza 3rd in the 1m at Pontefract

Fazza ran in the 1 mile class 5 handicap today at Pontefract. Shane Kelly took the ride aboard the Edwin Tuer trained 5 year old.

The ground was heavy and this was less than ideal for Fazza. Drawn in stall 2, Shane bounced out of the gate well and took up a handy position in second place.

At the 3f mark, Shane began to niggle away and fast shot showed his usual gameness and responded. The winner: Wisemans Diamond led from pillar to post and won well, Fazza was mugged on the line for 2nd and finished 3rd in a good race.

Fazza always gives a good account of himself and Edwin had a great training performance in the next race when Easy Terms won at a price of 16/1. Congratulations to all the staff at Edwins for a job well done.
