Given a fine , positive, front running ride from Adam Wedge, Clear The Runway won the 6th of his last 8 races. This time over fences off a career high handicap mark .
CLEAR THE RUNWAY, the winner of novice hurdles on his last two starts, had previously been progressive over fences. Reverting to chasing off a career-high mark, he travelled like the best horse, but he started to waver on the run-in and had little, if anything, in hand at the line. He has won six of his last eight races, which reflects tremendous credit on his trainer.
