A good Sunday to round up the weekend. ‘A Book Of Intrigue’ defied his odds to take the Bumper really well at Huntingdon yesterday. Connor gave him a lovely ride and although still green up the home straight, once he really got going in the last furlong he did it well. In the winners enclosure with owners Oscar Singh and…
