Impressed Again!

Mon 11 Mar 2024

WINNER 16 OF 2024: HOW IMPRESSIVE, trained by Hugo Palmer and ridden by Oisin Murphy: The 'BetMGM: It's Showtime Handicap' at Southwell, over 7f.

Drawn towards the outer in 8, he was smartly away and Oisin did a super job of getting him across without expending extra effort, as he took the lead. Still striding out in front, he kept on well from over 1f out. His lead was reduced towards the finish, but he was always doing enough, winning by 1/2 a length.

Watch the full race replay here:

Oisin told Matt Chapman after the race: "He has a very good attitude and is in terrific form. Hugo has taken the headgear off and this has brought about more improvement and he is thriving. "

Timeform gave him a career best t93+ performance rating and say: "Whose stable is going well, took his form up another notch with a top rider back on board, making it 3 wins from his last 4 starts back up in trip and worth affording a bit of extra credit having forced a sound gallop; led, travelled well, ridden over 1f out, went clear entering final 1f, closed down final 50 yds, always holding on."

Syndicate manager Tom says: "Well done once again, to his owners on his win last night up in class - this, the fifth of his career. We must thank Hugo especially with his management and training of How Impressive. He is a horse that has grown into a sensible and talented one, thanks to his trainers judgement. His win took us to over £500,000 of prize money won so far this year - a record start for us!"
