Archetype wins decisively at Sandown back at a mile

1st September, 2017

In an action packed feature at Sandown on Friday, Archetype made the most of a loose horse in front of him to record a two and a half length victory over the favourite Icespire in The All New Fiesta At Trust Ford Handicap. This son of Le Havre was posting his third victory of the season and his second at Sandown, a track he clearly acts well on having also been touched off by a short head earlier in the season. He was dropping back to a mile and it seemed to work well because Oisin Murphy was able to make plenty of use of him up with the pace. In the home straight the loose horse found itself in front, which rather helped Archetype stretch out to the line and record the wide margin victory.
