Bags back in the Groove
It was good to see Bags Groove back in the winner's enclosure at Aintree on Sunday after his luckless run at Chepstow just over a fortnight ago.
He wasn't suited by the muddling pace that day because they dawdled along down the back straight before sprinting once they turned for home.
As he has been in fine form since then we decided to ride him more prominently this time in Sunday's £27,500 two and a half mile handicap on the good going that he appreciates.
The horse found plenty in front and kept on well to beat Stamp Your Feet by two and a quarter lengths. Bags Groove had a progressive profile last season and we'll try to find another decent handicap for him in the next month or so before the ground goes against him.
He will then have a break during the worst of the winter before we look for suitable opportunities for him again in the spring.
