Placebo's got the effect

Star two year old, PLACEBO EFFECT, won his third race of the year with a gutsy 1 1/2 length success at Musselburgh this afternoon under Andrew Mullen.


It was a fairly straightforward victory, as he was settled mid-division early on, stoked up turning in before having nowhere to go just for a few strides, but as soon as he was switched inside, quickened up the rail to put the race to bed inside the final furlong and win with his ears pricked.


Bought on this day last year at Doncaster for only £3000, he looks a real bargain now and, with the manner of his win, another success this year looks possible.
