Fayez – nobody told Fayez he was 14/1 when he lined up for the Class 2 Wilmot-Smith Memorial Handicap at Ripon. He made headway from 2f out and jumped clear to win by three lengths, eased down. He has now managed seven wins and ten placed efforts, in total earning over Stg. £75,000. Proving that he can win on both turf and all weather, he can be expected to win more good handicaps.
