Mon 11 Sep 2017

Winning trainer Gary Moore said of the eight-year-old: "He broke the mould a bit as that is the first time he has won twice in a season. I'm so pleased for the syndicate who own him.

"He doesn't seem like an eight-year-old. He saves plenty for himself and that's how he's been able to go on for so long.

"He loves the track at Brighton and everything went right for him."

Send Up (15-2) needed every yard of the 12-furlong trip to reel in odds-on shot Broughtons Admiral in the Handicap.

The 4-5 favourite looked to be travelling much the best two furlongs out as the rest of the field came under the pump.

But Broughtons Admiral found little for pressure under Robert Winston, paving the way for Luke Morris aboard Send Up to snatch victory by half a length.
