Richard Gibson's debut runner, Fionn's Glory, labelled 'a rare specimen' by his trainer, paraded perfectly and then did what was expected when winning a Class Four up the straight yesterday. 'He was sourced from New Zealand and he has shown a lot of talent from day one. We only trialled him twice and he looked good straight away,' Gibson said. 'He is a talented individual who will continue to progress.' Fionn's Glory didn't dominate, but rather slugged it out in the opening event, with jockey Olivier Doleuze saying the horse was only '80 per cent fit'. Gibson, who now has 19 wins this season, agreed: 'I thought he just tired a bit and I think his fitness will improve as time goes on.'
