Ayr Festival Success for Revich
WINNER 83 OF 2021: REVICH, trained by Richard Spencer and ridden by Angus Villiers (-3): 'The £30k Class 2 Virgin Bet Handicap' over 1m at The Ayr Western Meeting.
With two runners in the field, our Mark Johnston trained MARIE'S DIAMOND did what he usually does and go forward, setting a strong pace. Revich was settled in fourth place in behind the leaders, with Angus making his move 2f out. A little short of room, he had to move around horses, but made good headway and went into the lead inside the final furlong. It looked like Marie's Diamond was going to stay on for 2nd, but was just pipped on the line into 3rd, as Revich crossed the line in front by 1/2 a length.

Syndicate manager Tim says: "Timeform rated it as a career best 103 performance and considering that was his first run at Ayr, it was an excellent performance from Revich. A 5th career win, he has proven to be such a fun syndicate horse. We are delighted for his owners and it was great that Richard Spencer was there to join in the post race celebrations. Thank you to Goffs for inviting our on course representative Mike and owners in for a celebratory drink afterwards. A great 3 days, as ever at Ayr, with grateful thanks to the on course team for their hospitality and allocation of badges so that all our owners who wished to attend, could do so.”
