ENCOURAGING THIRD PLACE FOR RUBAN AT LEICESTER

ENCOURAGING THIRD PLACE FOR RUBAN AT LEICESTER

Ruban gave the impression he was almost back to his best with a hard earned third place in a seven furlong handicap at Leicester under jockey Aaron Jones. The pace of the race early on came from the stand-side runners and drawn in stall three, Ruban had to be happy with racing in mid-division but in the final furlong or so he showed good determination to get into the places with a strong run, beaten only a head by the second horse and a length and a half from the winner, Assault on Rome.
