Hightimeyouwon got back to winning ways in Leopardstown on Thursday evening when landing the Skippio Express Collection Handicap under Adam Caffrey for owners Shamrock Thoroughbreds .

Having broken nicely from the gates, the Garswood gelding raced prominently under Adam in the early stages before Adam shifted his mount to the outside after the turn for home where he stayed on strongly on the outside to nab early leader Who Not What in the final strides to nab victory on the line.
Speaking afterwards, Ado said, “Adam gave him a good ride. He looks like a big three-mile chaser, but he wants it like the road. If he gets a smell of soft ground at all, he doesn’t seem to act on it. He was good around Dundalk, but he was quite disappointing a few times on soft ground.

He gave him plenty of room, he doesn’t like being crowded either. He pulled him wide and he stayed at it well, galloped home well. Adam is down to 5lb now, but he’s still good value.

We’ll try and find something else and rattle on with him. It’s his second win since we got him so the boys are delighted. He had very good form years ago in premier handicaps and if he wins again, he could sneak into one of them again. I’m sure we’ll find something for him in Galway, it might not suit if it’s slow ground.”
