Gold Fields got off the mark over fences at Fakenham today with a fine display of jumping to win impressively by 18 lengths. Still only a 6 year old he is now fulfilling the promise he has shown at home and hopefully there will be more to come..
GOLD FIELDS bounded clear from the second-last and recorded a first win under rules at the 14th time of asking. Rated as high as 88 over hurdles in the past, but without a place in any of 13 starts beforehand, this sudden improvement in form is difficult to fathom. He jumped well and travelled strongly throughout though, and will likely be in for a hefty hike in the weights once the handicapper has his say.
