Young John delighted us with his first run of the new season when going down by a head in a close fought battle at Leicester last Friday. YJ jumped well from the stalls and was always in the frontline. However, his exertions caught up with him in the final furlong and he went down by a head to Kupa River. He should come on for the run and appears to be in good heart this year. We will continue to look for further opportunities for him over a trip of 7f.
