Under a determined ride from Adam Wedge, Licklighter fought back on the run in, after being headed to get up close home and continue the fine run of the yard.
LICKLIGHTER showed plenty of determination to get up close home and beat a course specialist in a race that became a match turning out of the back straight. He had been headed narrowly when not putting in the cleanest jump at the last but battled back strongly on the run-in. This was his fourth win over fences, and his third since joining this in-form yard from Denis Hogan last year. He may not have stopped improving yet and looks like he could stay even further too.
