The decisive success of Margub at Wolverhampton on Tuesday evening continued the team’s fine start to the new season.
A progressive three year old last season he won twice at Chelmsford before a gelding operation late in the year.
He likes to get on with things and was soon in charge at the head of affairs in a Class 3 handicap over seven furlongs at Wolverhampton on his seasonal debut racing off a mark of 85.
The pack tried to close turning for home but Dane O’Neill had kept plenty up his sleeve on Margub who kept on strongly to beat Elerfaan by three and a half lengths with Sureyoutoldme two and a quarter lengths further back in third place.
While the handicapper is bound to have his say after this stylish victory you sense that the lightly raced winner has improved over the winter and can take another step forward this summer.
