Burcan provided Global Equine Group with our first winner of 2018 and adding to his trio of wins on Saturday afternoon, with a typical gutsy performance in the feature race of the day, the class 2, Betway Handicap at Lingfield that was run over 12 furlongs.

Luke Morris gave the 6 year old son of Astrnonomer Royal a perfectly timed ride, always travelling well behind the leading pair, and making his move in the final furlong to get to the front to land the spoils under a hands and heels finish, to win by a neck from Lawless Secret.

Burcan who was the first horse Adam purchased for owner Raed El Youssef at the Gorsebridge Breeze Up Sale in 2014, has proved a tough and consistent horse, winning 4 of his 10 races and only being out of the frame on two occasions.
