A PERFECT ride by Adam Sewell has helped Four Excel regain winning form.

"He followed instructions perfect,'' said trainer Stuart Kendrick after Four Excel ($6) led all the way in a Class 2 (1100m) at the Gold Coast on Saturday, September 17.

The Exceed and Excel four-year-old hadn't been leading in his races and had been mixing his form.

But on Saturday, Sewell found the lead and controlled the race perfectly in front before racing away in the straight to win by two lengths.

"He was cruising into the straight and had plenty in reserve to fend off the challengers and bound away over the concluding stages,'' Kendrick said.

"Hopefully, the win will give the horse some renewed confidence and he'll be able to rack up some more."

Four Excel now has three wins and five placings from 15 career starts.
