3.05 York – Roberto Escobar – WON 11/8 (Adv 5/2)

One of our Ten To Follow horses and now he has a quicker surface to race on, he’s very much one to be with. Really impressive when winning his maiden here at York, beating a number of nice animals. He then couldn’t quite reproduce his best in the Great Voltigeur. Only 5th on his return, but he wouldn’t have liked the soft ground. He’s a really nice type and is more than capable of winning at this level, before stepping into group company.

Roberto Escobarr – W Haggas
Third on his racecourse debut as a 3yo at Haydock, where he looked in need of the experience, met trouble in running and finished his race off with plenty of promise. He then won a nice novice event at York, pulling clear of several subsequent winners. Pitched into group company next time on the Great Voltigeur, he could only manage 6th place behind Pyledriver, but it was a very deep race, full of very classy runners throughout the entire field. Given time by connections he was then put away for this season. He has the size and scope to improve a good deal with another winter behind him. His full brother Pablo Escobarr progressed to win at group level and there seems no reason why this chap won’t either.
