Rio Ronaldo ran very well at Newmarket yesterday to achieve a 3rd placed and only beaten by a head and a nose. Rio Ronaldo jumped well from the stalls and travelled well in the race, just behind the pace. He looked as though he was coming with a winning chance but just stayed on up the hill. However, it was a much improved performance from his opening one of the season at Ascot and we were really pleased with his performance. The photograph below shows his lad, Hugo Meunier, in 3rd placed spot at the track.
