GUIDING LIGHT put up an impressive performance to win on his second time of asking yesterday evening at Chepstow. He broke well and settled up at the front of the pack for most of the way. His jockey, Jimmy Fortune asked him to quicken and he stayed on really well to beat the runner up, La Estatua by three quarters of a length. The hot favourite, Wonder of Qatar, was back in third, beaten 3 and three quarter lengths by Guiding Light.
It was a great win from a horse who will get further in due course. Winning over six furlongs at this stage of his racing career was a thrilling feat. Re-watch the win using the video box in the right hand side.
