BADENSCOTH came close last week to winning his second race at Kempton when beaten a head in a mile handicap under Robert Winston.
The progressive 3yo son of Foxwedge was running off an eight pound higher mark than for his win back in April and he seems to be improving. The handicapper will raise him again for this effort but he should be capable of winning again at some point this season.
Dean had eight other runners, the best of whom were Forever Yours and Cappananty Con who were both fourth at Windsor and Kempton respectively. Although fifth at Brighton, Roman Legion pleased connections with his first race in nearly six months.
