Sedgefield: In Extremis earns the bouquets for Iris.
IN EXTREMIS II, who had been in fair form on fast ground recently, got off the mark on his seventh attempt over hurdles when running right away from his rivals in the two-mile-five-furlong handicap.
Ridden by Russ Garritty, the six-year-old was sent on three out and drew clear to beat Far Glen by 20 lengths to give owner Iris Plumb a winner with her first horse.
"He needs fast ground and I was a bit worried it might be too loose for him," said his trainer George Moore, who has just a handful of horses for the summer jumping season.
