Monday was a day we won’t forget in a long time as Battle Of Ideas got his first win in just his third start over hurdles in front of 4 lucky Coral Champions Club members and their guests.
In what could turn out to be an above average maiden Battle relished the step up in trip, up with the leaders all the way and finding plenty when joined by the eventual runner up 2 out to win by a comfortable 1 1/4 lengths.
Assistant trainer Joe Tizzard was full of praise after the race when speaking to the club
“Battle of Ideas has come out of the race really well. It was a terrific performance and shows the improvement that he’s made from each run this season. He’ll learn a lot from that win and we will now see what the handicapper does. We could go for another novice hurdle under a penalty or take the handicap route.”
