Layla’s Hero became our first winner in the UK this year. After his victories at one mile and on grass in 2015, he managed this six furlong victory on the all weather at Southwell. This was his thirteenth career win with winnings of over Stg. £120,000. We would like to wish his owner and trainer, David Nicholls, many more victories with this HERO in the year ahead and the horses ability to run on turf or on dirt makes this a strong probability.
