Dark Scimitar showed us what we all knew he could do by winning the QuinnBet 25% Back As a Free Bet Handicap at Yarmouth yesterday., that was over 11 furlongs.

The good looking son of Verrazano jumped out of stall 4, in the five runner race, enjoying himself leading the field, 3 out, jockey, Dylan Hogan niggled him along to keep extending, which he did and he won by nearly 2 lengths for owners The Marrone De Bianco Partnership and trainer Marco Botti.

He heads up to Tattersalls now, where he sells on Friday, lot number 730.
