Caradoc was unlucky at York on the 23rd August, coming from last place to be beaten by a head and a head into third.  Returning to his favourite one mile and two furlong trip in the valuable Dubai Duty Free Handicap at Newbury  he stayed much closer to the pace, going 2nd at the 1f mark and taking the lead close home.  From his ninth career runs he now boasts four wins one second and one third.  This has brought his lifetime earnings to Stg. £80,000.  His new official rating is 100 so we are likely to see him racing in pattern company from here on.
