Mann’s patience pays off with Illewin Geez
The Charlie Mann-trained Illewin Geez won over hurdles for the first time in clear-cut fashion. “He had leg problems when he first came to us and was on the sidelines for over 1,000 days as a result of those issues, so it has been a long road back.
“He’s been his own worst enemy at times as he tends to be too keen and buzzy, but he was better this time around,” said Albert Ennis, Mann’s representative.
