San Francisco Bay had his first win on June 5th and was an unlucky loser at Lingfield on June 24th, beaten by a neck.  With a very short seven days turnaround he went back to Lingfield on July 1st and made no mistake on this occasion.  Going to post as the 7/4 favourite he had three lengths to spare over the runner up, when taking control a long way out.

The handicapper has raised his rating by 7 lbs.  Nevertheless the ease of his victory suggests that he can win again particularly on the all weather surface which he loves.

His New Bay half sister goes to the Orby sale at Goffs.
