Field Of Dream produces late run to land Bunbury

Report: Newmarket, Saturday

32Red Bunbury Cup (Heritage Handicap) (Class 2) 7f, 3yo+

FIELD OF DREAM produced a late charge to catch the well-fancied Es Que Love to land his first victory in almost a year under the in-form Adam Kirby.

The Jamie Osborne-trained six-year-old travelled well throughout but had four lengths to find on Es Que Love going into the final furlong and Kirby needed all of it, passing the eventual runner-up in the final yards.

Kirby said: "He's a funny horse in that he needs holding up but he needs to go between horses to deliver his challenge as he pulls up when he hit's the front. He loves this fast ground."

The regularly campaigned gelding followed up his solid run behind Belgian Bill in the Royal Hunt Cup, reversing the form in fine style in what was just his fifth victory in his 32 starts.

Paddy Power make him 12-1 (from 14) for the Betfair International Stakes at York.
