3rd in Gr.3 after a long break, KZN guineas next?

NORTHERN CONQUEST got up for 3rd in the Gr.3 Byerley Turk at Scottsville this afternoon under a just-right ride from MJ Byleveld. 1400 is by now short of his best, and the horse needed the race after a break as trainer Vaughan Marshall had predicted. Good result! Next stop the KZN Guineas (1600) all going well.
