Good run from Arcadian Sea
Arcadian Sea (aka “Brian”) was 2nd in his first run in handicap hurdles at Market Rasen on 7 June. Having come off the flat, this was only his fourth outing over hurdles and it has taken a while for the penny to drop with Brian but he is now learning to settle in his races better and his jumping is improving strongly. He was given a patient ride by Kevin Jones and was still 8th of the twelve runners turning in but stayed on strongly down the home straight, closing down firmly on the leaders and was only just held by 3/4 length by the winner. Kevin was very pleased with him and is convinced that he will win before long. For his part, Brian clearly enjoyed the run and recovered very quickly.
