CAMEO STARS AT BEVERLEY

Cameo Star secured his first win on just his second start. He was held up at the rear of the field by jockey Paul Hanagan after a stiff pace was set. He was still a bit green but started to get the hang of things and made headway approaching the final furlong. He was switched left and took up the lead and when he hit the front he stretched clear to win by a length-and-a-quarter. There were plenty of members of Let’s Go Racing 2 to welcome him back into the winners enclosure.

CONNOR RIDES CHESTER DOUBLE

It’s been a good week for apprentice Connor Murtagh, not only did he pass his driving test but he rode his first double at Chester. The first winner came on The Wagon Wheel. She was held up in mid-division and started to make headway three furlongs from home. She did hang right approaching the final furlong and ended up on the stand side rail but showed her class and went clear. She won by a comfortable three lengths.

Connor then gave Boundsy a perfectly timed ride to get him up on the line. He started to challenge over the final furlong after chasing the leaders and battled to get up and win by a neck. He’s been placed on his last two starts so it was great to see him get his head in front for owner Kevin Mercer.

AREEN FAISAL WINS PONTEFRACT NURSERY

Areen Faisal picked up the first win of his career in one of the first nursery’s of the season. The Bahamian Bounty colt tracked the leaders at Pontefract under jockey Phil Makin. They were always travelling well and started to make a challenge two furlongs from home. He was switched to the outside and took up the lead entering the final furlong. He stayed on to win by a length-and-a-quarter.

NATAJACK PICKS UP FIRST WIN

Natajack got the better of stablemate Character Onesie at Carlisle. He sat second under apprentice jockey Connor Murtagh and started to make a move two furlongs from home. He showed a good attitude when in front and although Tony tried to run him down on Character Onesie Natajack stayed on to win by a neck.

100TH WINNER – BEVERLEY TREBLE

The horses are running really well and a treble at Beverley took us to 102 winners for the season. Chiswick Bey bought up the hundred but he had to share the race in a dead heat. He was held up in mid division by Paul Hanagan and started to make a move over the final three furlongs. He chased the leader Iberica Road over the final furlong and the pair crossed the line together. The judge couldn’t separate them so they shared the spoils.

Wirral Girl was disappointing on her debut but she put that run behind her to put in a dominant performance. She made all and went clear over the final furlong. She stayed on to win by a commanding two-and-a-half-lengths.

Vaulted has been a very consistent filly, she’s been placed four times but it was fantastic to see her win. She was held up behind the leaders and although she did hang right she was in contention approaching the final furlong. She had to battle for the win but showed a good attitude to get up by a head.

LISTED SUCCESS FOR DANCE DIVA

Dance Diva made it three wins in a row and showed her class winning the Listed Empress Stakes at Newmarket. The Mayson filly was always in contention under jockey William Buick and it was left to her and our other runner Maggie’s Angel to battle out the finish. Dance Diva stayed on really strongly and pulled away to win by a length-and-a-quarter. A fantastic result for both fillies to get black type. Well done to owner Cheveley Park Stud, another important winner for Mayson.

YARMOUK PICKS UP FIRST WIN

Yarmouk picked up the first win of his career at Newcastle. He chased the leaders under jockey Phil Makin. He took up the lead a furlong out and stayed on well to win by a length-and-a-half. A great result for owner Sheikh Abdullah Almalek Alsabah.

WINS FOR CONSTANTINO & QUAYSIDE

Constantino has been running really consistently so it was fantastic to see him put in such a strong performance to win at Newcastle. He was held in mid-division by Tony Hamilton and started to chase down the leaders over the final two-furlongs. He lead over a furlong out and pulled clear of the rest of the field to win by a length-and-a-half for owner Sir Robert Ogden.

We then had another two-year-old winner with Quayside winning at Hamilton. The Harbour Watch-colt made all under jockey Jack Garritty on the stand-side rail. He stayed on well under pressure to win by three-quarters-of-a-length for Bearstone Stud.

CARNAGEO WINS CARLISLE BELL

The Carlisle Bell is a race Richard has always wanted to win so he was delighted when Carnageo won under Paul Hanagan. He was held up towards the rear of the field and started to make headway approaching the final furlong. He took up the lead and stayed on strongly to win by half-a-length for the Up For Anything Partnership.

REDCAR DOUBLE WITH FARADAYS SPARK & NORTHWEST FRONTIER

The winners keep going in this month and we had a double at Redcar in the opening two races on the card. Faraday’s Spark picked up his first win of his career. The Dragon Pulse colt tracked the leaders in fourth under Tony Hamilton and started to challenge over a furlong out. He battled for the lead and kept on well to win by half-a-length for owners Nick Bradley Racing.

Northwest Frontier then picked up his first win after finishing third on debut earlier this month. The three-year-old Galileo gelding tracked tracked the leaders and was always travelling well. He lead over a furlong out and stayed on strongly to pull clear and win by a length-and-a-half. A great result for owner Sir Robert Ogden.
