The yard is in great form as Licklighter, a recent import from Ireland made a comfortable winning debut in this country. A great result for longstanding yard supporter Paul Read.
LICKLIGHTER, an Irish import who was bought for £9,000 in October, was making his debut for Laura Morgan. He proved quite popular in the betting and the support was not misplaced as he scored quite nicely after taking closer order just before halfway. It will be interesting to see if he can back this up.
Socialist Agenda makes an impressive winning debut under a confident Adam Wedge at Market Rasen. He is now for sale and looks to be a very exciting prospect.
The steady pace dictated that this was a test of speed, the winner much better equipped for it than the remainder.
SOCIALIST AGENDA, a Flat-bred gelding, was essentially too quick for more stoutly bred sorts, cruising upsides the leader in the straight and not hard pressed to go clear in the closing stages. He had any amount in hand, though, so he may well be able to defy a penalty when speed is at a premium.
