Cityzen Serg Scores at Wolves
OUR 66th WINNER OF 2020: CITYZEN SERG, trained by Richard Hannon and ridden by Sean Levey: The Bombardier 'March To Your Own Drum' Handicap over 1m 1/2f at Wolverhampton.
Drawn in 1, he bounced out well, allowing two on his outer to take the race along. Settled in third, he tracked the leaders and as the final bend came in sight, Sean got to work on him, pulling him around to the outer, making smooth headway at the 2f pole. He began to challenge for the lead 1f out, going on to assert in the straight, keeping on well, to win by by 1 1/2 lengths. Having been 2nd at the track on debut, he clearly likes Dunstall Park and a return to an AW surface.

Syndicate manager Tim says: " Well done to his owners - I think we have found the key to Cityzen Serg. I thought that Sean gave him a very good ride - being positive without setting him alight. He was in the right position turning for home and we got first run on the favourite. His win took us past the £800,000 of prize money won this year, which is good going. All credit to our syndicate managers placing the horses with our trainers and to their teams at home for their training accomplishments. We've got a great string of horses for the winter on the flat - plus of course the tremendous prospects over the jumps to keep us and our owners going on the chillier days!"
