FOURTH WIN FOR LANDUE

Landue gained his fourth success from six starts this year with a cosy victory in a Class  5 Handicap over an extended mile and five furlongs at Chelmsford on Monday night.

A tough and consistent colt by Champs Elysees, he has been running well all season in the familiar green and white colours of his trainer.

Landue has always shaped as though stamina was his strong suit and once again came from off the pace to win with something to spare.

He was given a patient ride by Hayley Turner who eased him onto the heels of the leaders turning for home before sending him through a timely gap inside the final furlong to seal the victory by three quarters of a length from Hope Is High.

Landue should develop onto a useful stayer next year for Marcus Tregoning and given that he won off a mark of 72 on Monday there is surely more improvement to come after a winter on his back.

Tregoning is still on a high after the success of Mohaather in the Group 3 Horris Hill Stakes on Saturday.

One option he is considering for the Showcasing colt early next season is the Greenham Stakes at Newbury in April.

“We can dream after that”, he says.
