21/8/16....After a very quiet season for the stable it was great to get back into the winners stall in the feature Grand National Steeple chase at Ballarat on Sunday with Wells.
In extremely wet conditions Wells ran away with a convincing victory by 10 lengths to his nearest rival.
He was given a great ride by Richard Cully who has ridden him throughout the jumping season with placings in the Australian and Mosstrooper steeple chases.
After sustaining an injury and missing the 2015 season, Wells has been racing very well with placings on the flat at Flemington and over the jumps.
He is a superior stayer and he showed his class when an easy winner on Sunday with top weight of 69kg's.
He has been a wonderfully honest horse and has now won two Grand National Chases from two starts in the race.
