Bear Claws He did it well. He had an outside draw (in 24), which wasn't ideal, and Billy gave him a lovely ride,. He sat in and let him find his feet. He came there on the bridle. I was watching the other horse Watchman and he seemed to come off the bridle just around the corner. Then I saw the other horse, I was watching him then up the straight as I just knew he had come on to it. Billy said he got a lovely run up the inside, picked up again and away he went. To be fair to Watchman he stayed on well to finish third, the two of them ran well. The winner has been knocking on the door. He's entered in the sales, he wants a good cut in the ground and he wants a distance so he'd be an ideal horse to go hurdling. We'll see what else there is coming up. I think there is maybe only one other race he's eligible for and that might be after the sales. We'll see what happens but at least he's won.
