Bowen up to Par at Sandown
As one champion bowed out another emerged and this seasons Conditional Champion Jockey Sean Bowen steered home two winners at Sandown this afternoon including the BET365 Gold Cup for boss Paul Nicholls aboard Just A Par under a very accomplished and strong ride.
Le Reve had the lead at the last whilst Paint The Clouds sent off a 13/2f was right in contention in the battle to the line as Vics Canvas emerged with a huge late rally to press the winner the hardest but Just A Par relished every yard and had too much for the challengers in the run to the post on a memorable day for Bowen.
“All he needed was that trip. All he does is keep galloping. I thought at the third-last I’d been waiting too long, but I thought they’d come back to me and thankfully they did.” Sean Bowen.
Victorious too in the opener aboard Lil Rockerfella for trainer Neil King, Bowen coming home in front of Richard Johnson who rode Sternrubin into second place.
A rising star this season claiming his share of the spoils on a special day for the sport and the exit of AP McCoy has a nice byline for the future added to the script.
