GROUP 3 SUCCESS FOR MR LUPTON

Mr Lupton is a star of a horse, he always gives his best and was rewarded with a Group 3 at Newbury. Jockey Gerard Mosse had won on him before and they have built a good partnership. They chased the leaders and were second inside the final two furlongs. They picked up strongly on the soft ground and pulled clear of Take Cover to win by three-quarters-of-a-length for owner Noel Kershaw.

LUCKY LUCKY MAN WINS AYR BRONZE CUP

Apprentice Oakley Brown had another day to remember winning the Ayr Bronze Cup on Lucky Lucky Man. The 16-year-old won on the three-year-old at Newcastle in July and they’ve built a good partnership. Lucky Lucky Man is a mud lark and relished the heavy ground at Ayr. He sat in mid-division and made an eye catching run approaching the final furlong. He hit the front and pulled clear to win by a length-and-three-quarters for the Musley Bank Partnership.

ZAP WINS AT LEOPARDSTOWN

The trip over the water to Leopardstown proved fruitful with Zap pouncing late to win the Premier Handicap. He was always travelling strongly in mid-division under jockey Chris Hayes. He made headway on the turn for home and stayed on really strongly in the final furlong to get up and a win by a neck. A great result owner Peter Timmins.

PICTURE NO SOUND WINS AFTER DUBAI STINT

Picture No Sound returned to us earlier this year after a stint in Dubai and it was great to see him win on just his second start back. He sat in mid-division under jockey Paul Hanagan and was aways travelling nicely. He made headway a furlong rom home and showed a good attitude to stay on under pressure to win by a neck.

WINS FOR QUEEN PENN, BORODIN & RENE

Queen Penn finally got her soft ground and back in the winners enclosure. She raced keenly under Paddy Mathers at Thirsk and lead two furlongs from home. She was pressed towards the finish and showed a good attitude to stay on and win by a neck.

We then doubled up at the track with Borodin. He’s been a very consistent horse and it was great to see him get his head in front again for Sir Robert Ogden. He tracked the leader under Jack Garritty and started to press over the final two furlongs. He was hard pressed inside the final furlong and stayed on well to win by three-quarters-of-a-length.

Rene Mathis made all under Connor Murtagh to win at Wolverhampton. The eight-year-old has been a star for owner Dr Marwan Koukash and this was his second win this season.

MR DIAMOND SPARKLES AT CARLISLE

Mr Diamond showed a great attitude to pick up his first win at Carlisle. He was held up in midfield by jockey Tony Hamilton and was pushed for a challenge at the two furlong pole. He battled with our other runner Essenza over the final and got up to win by half-a-length.

FOOL FOR YOU KEEPS IMPROVING

Fool For You has been ultra consistent and has been second on her last two starts. Apprentice Rhiain Ingram rode her at York at the end of last month and they teamed up well. She picked up the ride again at Wolverhampton and was happy to sit behind the pace. They mounted the challenge over the final furlong and she showed a fantastic attitude to battle and get up and win by a nose for owner John Dance.

SPANISH MANE WINS AT MUSSELBURGH

Spanish Mane picked up the second win of her career at Musselburgh. She was always in touch under jockey Tony Hamilton. They made headway approaching the final furlong and she stayed on strongly to get up on the line and win by a nose for owners Norman and Helen Steel.

 

CHIEF JUSTICE WINS OVER HURDLES

We had a rare winner over the jumps with Chief Justice at Worcester. He had his quirks on the flat especially coming out of the stalls but has taken to jumping really well and picked up his first win over hurdles on just his second start. He was always travelling well under Brian Hughes and he looked the winner approaching the second last. He stayed on really nicely to win by five-lengths for Cheveley Park Stud.

Ventura Gold made a nightmare journey to Lingfield worth while. He made all under jockey Silvestre De Sousa and when challenged over the final furlong he showed a great attitude under a driving finish to get up and win by a length-and-three-quarters.

GOLDEN CIRCLE IMPRESSIVE AT RIPON

Golden Circle built on her second on debut earlier this month to put in an eye-catching performance at Ripon. The Kingman-filly chased the leaders under Paul Hanagan and had the lead a furlong from home. She pulled clear to win by two-and-a-half-lengths for owners The Socrates Partnership and Lady O’Reilly.
