After taking the bold decision to give his horses fortnights break to get over a virus, Duncan has slowly brought his string back to the boil with Legend winning last Sunday and Barinois coming back strongly from her break to win smartly in the Track & Ball Savera Handicap at Greyville yesterday.
Anton Marcus tracked the early pace before, as is his want, switching for a clear outside run.
Barinois responded smartly and the race was over as a contest a furlong out to the satisfaction of part owners Rick and Thora Nidd who were always keen on the progeny of Ashaawes.
Rick and Thora are staunch supporter of the yard and they were well rewarded for their patience and the manner of victory suggests that there is still a win or two left in their filly.
