It wouldn’t be […]

Can lightning really strike twice with another Classic Chase winner going onto Aintree glory? Well, the connections of Kimberlite Candy really hope so after the gelding came up trumps in Warwick’s feature race last Saturday. In a season reminiscent to that of One For Arthur in 2016/17, the eight-year-old has now performed well in two […]
