Hint a Taunton specialist
Sent to us this Autumn he was making up for an unlucky defeat at the track twelve days ago when he led for every yard of the race except the one that matters.
Things were tight at the finish again on Tuesday as he was pressed all the way to the line by Man of Plenty who was in receipt of 21 lbs. This time though the photo finish was in our favour by a neck.
Noel Fehily very much liked the way Hint Of Mint stuck on gamely on the run-in. The horse has now won three times at Taunton, a course that clearly suits him, so it makes sense to think about sending him back there for another handicap in the next few weeks.
