You Just Need Friends At Exeter

7th December 2018, 09:09 by Gerard Lees

Promising Young Chaser to Take This On Way To Better Things

Exeter puts on an extended three miles six furlongs handicap chase today and Somerset trainer Nicky Martin sends THE TWO AMIGOS to the next county in pursuit of the prize. The six-year-old son of Midnight Legend has looked a stayer since his days with David Pipe, and his return to the point-to-point field with Martin has confirmed this with a sequence of five wins, one on heavy ground as today, at Wadebridge. He has run twice under Rules lately and won easily over three miles two on heavy ground at Newbury in October. The Matt Griffiths ridden gelding carries 3lbs more than when running a second to previous winner and subsequent second Some Chaos at Market Rasen the following month and as a six-year-old should have enough improvement in him to overcome the extra weight. YANMARE will love the going, according to BTOPlus+ stats and FIREBIRD FLYER ran really well on his reappearance when runner-up at Hereford a couple of weeks ago but at 11/4 The Two Amigos looks the bet and will likely make all.
