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.

Today’s teasers…

“King Vince won two bumpers and has shown promise over hurdles. He’s coming together well now and will improve for the step up in trip. He is third best on ratings here but the other two look vulnerable and he’s not without a chance.”

Jamie Snowden, King Vince

“Viognier is new to the yard and this run should tell us lots about her. She had bits and pieces of form last year, but it did tail away at the back end.”

Harry Whittington, Viognier

“Equilateral is one of the most exciting horses we’ve had here for a long time. He won really well at Doncaster. That form is working out and his preparation has gone well since. He put in a terrific gallop when ridden by my brother Michael this month. Michael told me he hadn’t gone up there as well since riding my father Barry’s Dewhurst winner Distant Music. I suppose the only thing that worries me is Equilateral’s last of experience but he has a great temperament and is in good shape, so he should be thereabouts.”

Charles Hills, Equilateral

2.55 Uttoxeter | June 20

“If he doesn’t bleed he should win because he bled last time – that’s the only problem we have with him.”

Charlie Mann

“Has won his last two in good style and continues to be in good form at home. The ground will be quick enough for him today but hopefully he can continue on his winning streak.”
