Dereham starts turf season in style

Stepped up in trip to 2m5f, Dereham relished every yard of the Pontefract's Into The Sky Marathon Handicap to win easily by seven lengths with Megan Nicholls on his 2022 turf debut.

Now six, he has developed into a thoroughly genuine stayer and clearly enjoys his trips north to Yorkshire, as he was also runner-up on his final start of last season at Pontefract, having started the 2021 season with victory at Yarmouth.

Dereham appears to have taken his race well and we hope he will head next to Goodwood over the Guineas weekend before returning to Pontefract in June to continue his participation in the track's Stayers' Championship Series.
