Buick impressed with Brunch after Listed win

William Buick was full of praise for Brunch after he guided the Michael Dods-trained four-year-old to victory in the Listed Sky Bet Go Racing In Yorkshire Summer Festival Pomfret Stakes at Pontefract.

Brunch was angling for room as he turned into the home straight towards the rear of the field, but once Buick eased him out of a pocket behind the leaders, he flew home on the outside to eventually win by a cost three-quarters of a length.

Brunch, owned by Fiona Denniff, had finished second in the Lincoln at the start of the season, and Buick was impressed by the way he took the step up out of handicap company in his stride.

Speaking to Racing TV Buick said: “The pace looked like it was going to be on, and he’s a closer. Turning for home, I just had to navigate a little bit of room for him.

“He finished off real strong, and he’s a nice little horse. He’s taken the step up to Listed company well today.

“The ground is perfect for him, just good ground I would say. Those big handicaps he’s been running in, they’re hard races and he’s been winning some of them and only just narrowly getting beat in some of them. He’s a pretty decent horse.”
