On the last meeting of the year, Burcan ran in the Betway Middle Distance Handicap at Lingfield.
A competitive, class 3, mile and a half race, he was ridden by Daniel Muscutt.
He jumped and grabbed the rail,just tracking the leaders, sitting 5th where he stayed, travelling well for the most part of the race.
The leaders started to wind it up 3 furlongs from home. @ out, he came between horses to join the leaders and went on to lead inside the final furlong where he was strongly challenged by Alinstante, but he battled well and held on to win in a photo finish.
This was another typical gutsy performance from the consistent 4 year old gelding, and a great way to finish another successful year for Global Equine Group and our clients.
