Gottardo is a recent addition to the yard who will provide invaluable experience to stable amateur Sophie Smith in sprint races over the coming months.

Previously trained by Fozzy Stack in Ireland, he was the winner of a five-furlong handicap at Dundalk in April of last year, whilst he placed on numerous other occasions. Given that he is only four and was once rated as high as 80, it was hoped that he can prove that his opening British mark of 69 is lenient. 

That proved to be the case in no uncertain terms, as he raced to a last gasp success under a cool ride from Sophie on his stable debut in March at Chelmsford. As the winning margin was only a head, he was only raised in the weights by a single pound, which suggests he should remain competitive in similar company going forward.
