BRUCE LYNN SHOWS HIS COOL AT CHESTER WITH FINE WIN
One of the best finishes of the day was enjoyed at Chester on Friday by Hawick’s rising teenage star Bruce Lynn when partnering CLASSIC SENIORITY for Marjorie Fife in the gentlemen’s handicap over 7 1/2 furlongs.
Slowly into stride, Bruce was happy to bide his time at the rear of the field led by Gary Beaumont and RALPHY BOY. Bruce then made a bold run up the inner and came with a sustained challenge inside the last couple of furlongs for CLASSIC SENIORITY to hold on by a head in a three-way photo with Simon Walker 2nd on ECHO OF LIGHTNING and Matt Ennis with CHARACTER ONESIE another head back in 3rd.
Chester is a notoriously tricky track for anyone to handle and this was a great ride from Bruce in his first visit there. His coolness in the saddle received much well deserved praise from the attending press. Congratulations to Bruce and to winning connections!
