The Rapid Racehorse once again proves true to his name, taking home the gold at Kelso.
Aiden Coleman, having now spent nearly 18 months with Perfect Man, running only once on the day in the Racing to Work Handicap Hurdle and qualifying for the final of the Challenger Series at Haydock in April.
The victory was quoted as a ‘decent win from a high-career mark’ and comes as the 7th undefeated race for the duo.
Speaking to Racing TV after the race, Aiden explained that Perfect man ‘is very ground dependent, but they were optimum conditions for him there’. Aiden hopes that he can continue his undefeated run as they go onto their next race next Tuesday.
‘PERFECT MAN wasted no time getting back on track, taking his record to 2 from 3 this season; waited with, chased leaders entering straight, every chance when carried head bit awkwardly approaching last, stayed on well to assert run-in; he’s still lightly raced over marathon trips.’
