The Hintlesham Racing (UK) 2 year old colt FLYING STANDARD ventured onto a racecourse for the first time yesterday at Yarmouth.

It was expected that he would find it all a bit baffling, but the big colt showed good early speed, whilst being left with only a couple of companions on the stands side while the field went down the middle.

Seeing daylight the whole way was not ideal but he cruised well under George Wood for a time before getting tired. He should reappear in mid October, probably same course and distance (7f) and there is no doubt that his work has improved for the experience and his trainer Chris Wall is in fine form.
