Racing news Barizan back to winning form

Barizan back to winning form19th February 2013

Former top-class juvenile Barizan has provided numerous frustrations for his connections but finally returned to lift a valuable prize in the Bathwick Tyres Handicap Hurdle at Taunton.

Trained by Evan Williams, Barizan produced a thrilling front-running effort in the 2010 Triumph Hurdle, only getting caught in the closing stages by Soldatino, and went on to take the championship event at Punchestown.

He could never build on those achievements and had finished tailed off in two outings after returning from more than a year on the sidelines, but the 25-1 shot finished best in the sticky Somerset mud, picking off Home Run to collect by a length and a quarter.
