All three of our selections ran well yesterday without giving us a return. Bonne Question improved significantly on what he achieved on his first run back from a long absence. He eventually finished fifth of the seven runners at Wetherby but he only faded in the latter stages, a mistake at the last not helping his cause, and was beaten four and half lengths. At Newcastle Russian Realm traveled and finished well but found the favourite half a length too good. In the same race Luis Vaz De Torres finished fifth, beaten two and half lengths, and should strip fitter next time after a 129 day break.
