Nine Year Old Getting Some Consistency And Can Win Again
Irish import ERIC THE THIRD had 22 runs in the Emerald Isle before being transferred to Tim Vaughan's yard and managed a couple of wins over fences and hurdles. His career in Britain got off to an inauspicious start with a tumble in a Taunton handicap hurdle but, fitted with a hood, he then ran a nine lengths fifth to Get Ready Freddy before chalking up a win over fences at Newton Abbot. He pulled away from his field there and then went for a handicap hurdle over today's course and distance where he went down in a photo finish to Thames Knight, runner up in his previous race, his seasonal debut. Eric goes off the same mark of 81 today. He is top on BTOPlus+'s regular ratings and third on speed and gets eight positives, including his trainer's 32% better than expected over course and distance and the liking for ground and distance by the progeny of his sire Mountain High. He is best 9/4 with a few of the layers.
