Light on top in Trial battle

Sun, 13 May 2012

Light Heavy continued his progressive profile for Jim Bolger with an ultra-game performance in the Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial at Leopardstown.

Tower Rock, the apparent pacemaker for better-fancied Aidan O'Brien-trained stablemate and Breeders' Cup winner Wrote, set off in front, with Kevin Manning sitting in second on the eventual winner.

Light Heavy joined issue at the two-furlong pole with Wrote, the 8-13 favourite, struggling, and settled down for a titanic tussle as Tower Rock refused to give in. Although not the biggest, Light Heavy (15-8) certainly has the right attitude and the son of Teofilo answered every call before prevailing by a neck.
