IMPRESSOR STRIKES AT SALISBURY

Impressor continued the sparkling form of the team with a highly impressive success in  the second division of a Class 4 maiden over six furlongs at Salisbury on Wednesday.
He was big eyecatcher on his debut at Goodwood fifteen days earlier when he finished full of running in fourth place despite suffering notable interference two furlongs from home.
The experience was not lost on Impressor who bounced out smartly at Salisbury, was always at the head of affairs as the field edged towards the stands rails and was fully in command as he galloped home three and a half lengths clear of the favourite Stoweman.
Marcus Tregoning was concerned to find testing conditions when he walked the course before racing but they didn’t trouble his stylish colt who has some smart entries in the months ahead.
The trainer said “Impressor is an attractive, well balanced colt who seemed fine on the soft ground though I wasn’t sure he would handle it.
“We felt he was unlucky on his debut at Goodwood and has won in a good time at Salisbury.”
Although Impressor is in the Champagne Stakes at Doncaster Tregoning is inclined to keep him to six furlongs for his next start which could be the Dubai Duty Free Mill Reef Stakes at Newbury.
