Mitchells Way Wins at Carlisle
Mitchells Way was back at his favourite track today to compete in the hands and heels conditionals race over 2 mile 3 and a half furlongs. Thomas Garner was aboard the Alan Swinbank trained 6 year old.
As with his previous races, Thomas was instructed to keep him handy from the start and see how the race unfolds. He was kept right up with the pace up on until the half-way point when Thomas sent him on into a share of the lead and he looked to be travelling best of all.
Very efficient jumping allowed Thomas to take it up 4 out and he quickly had the field on the stretch, popping his hurdles nicely and looking in complete control, he went on to score by 2 lengths.
This was the 1st time that Mitchells Way has run on good ground and he relished it, a really impressive performance, well done to all of his owners.
