Canterbury -  Friday 14 February  -  Over 1900m DYLAN’S ROMANCE may have carried equal top weight including the allowance for apprentice Billy Owen and had to jump from the second outside barrier but he was able to cross the field and lead comfortably in his favourite role on a slow track.  Billy rated him perfectly and increased the tempo coming into the turn to have the rest of field off the bit.  Once in the straight he never looked like losing and went on to win his 11th start by nearly 4 lengths.
