Winner at Kempton
4 year old gelding Swiss Spirit endured a troubled passage but came on top to win the 8f feature race of the evening at Kempton under jockey Rob Hornby for owners Whitcoombe Park Racing.
Having run a gallant race in very close defeat last time out this was a well deserved second victory for the horse who has done so well to recovery from knee surgery last July.
Bred in France by Heather Murat, Swiss Cheer comes from a family we know well and he has been the best produce to date of the mare Happy Clapper who had a brief racing career with us many years ago. Not to be confused with the Australian version (perennial runner up to the mighty Winx!).
