Sarsons Risk for Roger Brookhouse got off the mark in game style by landing the RacingTV Handicap Leicester under a well judged ride from David Probert, getting home by three parts of a length from Lexington Knight.

The 3yr old was coming back off a two months break, and taking a big drop in class compared with his last run at Doncaster.

He showed plenty of grit in the final two furlongs today and could progress again now that he’s got his head in front.
