Solent Gateway did not win as a 2YO when running over distances of six furlongs but all that changed this year when stepping up in trip. A winner at Epsom in June at 1m2f his astute trainer,Tom Dascombe, asked him to run over two miles at Chester and he obliged with a comfortable victory. The handicapper has now given him an official rating of 90 but at these longer distances there will be more wins in the offing.
His total winnings now exceed Stg. £40,000 and this should grow as the year progresses.
