Dods excited by Brunch after tasty Newcastle victory

MICHAEL Dods has described Brunch as “an exciting horse” after the three-year-old cruised to victory at Newcastle today.

The Harbour Watch gelding settled well under a patient ride from Callum Rodriquez in the Betway Heed Your Hunch British Stallion Studs EBF Novice Median Auction Stakes, before forging clear and winning cosily by two and a half lengths.

Michael said: “He was progressive as a two-year-old and it was nice to see him get off the mark for this season in such good style. He saw out the mile really well and is an exciting horse.

“There are no definite plans yet – we’ll talk to the owners and see what the handicapper does.”

Brunch was giving 7lbs away to the rest but looked comfortable throughout the race.

He started his two-year-old campaign by finishing fifth on heavy going at Doncaster in October, before winning over seven furlongs on the all-weather at Newcastle on his second start in November.
