Hand From Above returned to the winners circle with an impressive performance stepping up out to 1550m for the first time this prep in the fourth event at Canterbury this afternoon. The More Than Ready gelding settled beautifully midfield off enjoying a solid tempo, inform apprentice Jean Van Overmeire allowed Hand From Above to work his way into the race under his own steam to be within striking distance just after straightening. Hand From Above pounced on the leaders gathering in the leaders showing a nice turn of foot to score by a length. “That was a great win by Hand From Above. He is a big gross gelding that has need to race his way into peak fitness and I couldn’t have been happier with his condition he was rock hard fit and came here today confident that he was ideally placed . Jean rode him brilliantly he didn’t panic when there was a midrace move timing his run to perfection. We will look to find another suitable race for him in the coming weeks and I have no doubt that he will pick up another race on his current form” added Kim.
