Donjuan Triumphant has proved a tough and consistent performer for Andrew Balding.
The five-year-old ran a personal best when finishing a two-and-a-quarter lengths third behind Sands Of Mali in the £632,500 QIPCO British Champions Sprint in 2018.
Balding said: “I’m delighted with that. He’s just a really solid performer on that sort of [soft] ground and he doesn’t know how to run a bad race when conditions are right for him.”
Jockey James Doyle, on board for the first time, said: “It was a good run. He relishes these conditions and had a lovely run through. I tracked the winner and when he quickened away from me I just kept galloping.”
Donjuan Triumphant had previously finished a keeping-on fourth in the 32Red Sprint Cup at Haydock.
He deservedly got his head in front at Doncaster in November and his below-par return at Leicester in 2019 can be forgiven on account of the quick going. He is well served by soft ground.
