4YO Helmet mare Linguist canters home with Linda ‘chopper’ Meech aboard to pick up her second win in style.
Another gem for FLR favourite Linda Meech who couldn't have given Linguist a better run. After jumping well, Linguist went forward in her usual pattern, however, with no one opting to take the lead Linda took the initiative and the pair dictated their own pace whilst not letting the favourite with 60kgs bludge in behind.
The last 300m was pretty to watch, with Linda just sitting on Linguist at a canter, the rest of the field were off the bit chasing for the post.

Linguist won by 4.5 lengths - coincidently - the same margin she won her maiden by. She now boosts 3 starts over 1600m for two wins by a combined 9 lengths and a date during Cup week awaits for her and her army of owners.
Linda said; “She feels like a mare that could go on.”
Linguist made it two winners in a row for First Light Racing breaking the streak of second light racing.
