Two from two for Afloat

Afloat continued her recent good form with another win at Great Yarmouth yesterday.

Jon and Sophie Mills' three year old obviously enjoys the coastal track and did not appear to mind the quick turnaround having won there just nine days before. The ground was quicker than last time but she still went off the 11/10 favourite. Having been put up eight pounds from her last win she ran with a penalty this time which made her two pounds better off. Kieran Shoemark took the reins this time and she was drawn from stall 12. Travelling on the outside she eventually managed to get some cover towards the rear. She was able to get a nice tow through the race and a furlong and a half out she laid down a strong challenge to take the lead and repel the fast finishing Letaba by half a length.

Congratulations to Jon and Sophie once again, it is fantastic to see their patience rewarded.
