DOUBLES UP FOR ROYAL COSMIC & PADDY POWER

Royal Cosmic and Paddy Power both secured their second wins on the bounce. Royal Cosmic won over course and distance at Musselburgh just seven days ago and he followed that up with a battling display. Connor Murtagh was taking 5lbs off and it proved vital. She tracked the leaders and was always travelling strongly. She battled over the final furlong with Donnachies Girl and the pair crossed the line together. A photo was needed to separate them but she got up to win by a head for owners The Cosmic Cases.

Paddy Power followed up his win at Pontefract last month with a win at Windsor. He was held up in mid-division by jockey Paul Hanagan, tracking the pace. He made headway over the final furlong and ran on strongly to get up and win by three-quarters-of-a-length.

TWO-YEAR-OLD TREBLE

We may be getting towards the back end of the season but the two-year-old winners keep going in. Fool For You got things started at Catterick winning on just her second start. The Lawman filly tracked the leaders under P J McDonald and was pushed for an effort over half way. She took up the lead entering the final furlong and stayed on to win by a length-and-a-half for owner John Dance.

El Chapo secured his second win on the bounce under jockey Paul Hanagan. He was always in contention and pressed the leader heading into the final furlong. He took up the lead approaching the line and stayed on well to win by half-a-length for owners Merchants and Missionaries.

Indomeneo secured his fourth win of his career at Leicester. The Piccolo colt has been super consistent and is an exciting prospect for owners Middleham Park Racing. He pressed the leader under jockey Adam McNamara and had the lead over four furlongs from home. He showed a great attitude and stayed on well to win by a length.

ROYAL COSMIC AT MUSSELBURGH

Royal Cosmic picked up her first win at Musselburgh. The Wootton Bassett filly was always prominent under jockey Paul Hanagan. They made headway over the final two furlongs and pulled clear of the rest of the field with Inspector Norse. The pair battled over the final furlong but Royal Cosmic showed a good attitude and stayed on strongly to win by  a length-and-a-half.

DARKANNA WINS REDCAR TROPHY

Richard finally got to tick the Redcar Listed two-year-old Trophy off the list after Darkanna showed her class to win under jockey Barry McHugh. Darkanna has been running consistently well in some top class races and was sent off the 4 to 1 favourite. She was always prominent and had the lead over a furlong from home. She held off the challenge from the fast finishing Flying Sparkle to win by half a length. A fantastic result for owners The Cool Silk Partnership.

 

RUBIS WINS AT AYR

Rubis has been running consistently well and built on his second at Carlisle last month to win at Ayr. He tracked the leaders under jockey Sammy Jo Bell and started to make headway over the final two furlongs. She took up the lead towards the finish and stayed on to win by three-quarters-of-a-length for owners Mr and Mrs Ashton.

NINE LENGTH WIN FOR HEATONGRAD

Heatongrad loved the heavy conditions at Epsom and put in a brilliant performance to win by a massive nine lengths. He made all under jockey Silvestre De Sousa. He travelled along the nearside rail when heading into the straight and stretched clear of his rivals to hand Middleham Park Racing a memorable win.

Aimez La Vie showed a fantastic attitude to battle to victory at Musselburgh. She tracked the leaders under jockey Adam McNamara and started to challenge approaching the final furlong. She battled with Raselasad and got up to win by a head for owners Mr and Mrs Wrigley.

30 WINNERS IN SEPTEMBER

Saturday’s four-timer meant we ended September with 30 winners. Showmethedough got the ball rolling at Ripon with a dominant display on just his third start. He was always prominent under jockey Adam McNamara and had the lead over a furlong out. He was soon clear and stayed on to win by two-and-a-quarter-lengths.

Adam then rode a double with a really strong ride on Indomeneo. This was the two-year-olds third win on his seventh start. He tracked the leaders and challenged approaching the final furlong. He had to battle all the way to the line and got up to win by a neck for Middleham Park Racing.

Sammy Jo Bell timed it perfectly to get Boundsy to get up and win on the line at Haydock. The three-year-old is such a consistent horse he’s won on three of his last four starts. He was always in contention and there were four horses all battling to the line. He showed a brilliant attitude to get up and win by a nose.

Our final winner of the day came at Chester for Dr Marwan Koukash. Gabrial The Tiger tracked the leader under Connor Murtagh and took up the lead inside the final furlong. He was challenged by our other runner Dark Devil but held on to win by a half-a-length.

PONTY DOUBLE WITH SHAZZAB & PADDY POWER

Shazzab picked up the second win of her career with an eye catching performance at Pontefract. She was held up by jockey Paul Hanagan and started to make a challenge approaching the final two furlongs. When she hit the front she stayed on strongly to win by two-and-a-quarter-lengths for owners Darren Barton.

Paddy Power made it a double on the card after somehow managing to find the gaps to pounce late. He was towards the back of the field but always looked to be travelling well. Approaching the final furlong the field was tightly bunched together and Paul ran into all sorts of traffic problems but when he finally got some daylight Paddy finished strongly to win by a neck.

 

BUCKSTOPPER KIT WINS AT BEVERLEY

Buckstopper Kit picked up the first win of his racing career on just his third start. The Kittens Joy colt tracked the leaders under Paul Hanagan. He stayed on strongly and battled over the final furlong and got up to win by a neck. That was our 16th winner at Beverley which means Richard is leading trainer at the track and Paul is leading jockey with ten winners.

EL CHAPO PICKS UP FIRST WIN

El Chapo has been running consistently and has been knocking on the door so it was great to see him pick up his first win at Catterick. The Leathal Force colt was held up in mid-division by jockey Paul Hanagan. He was asked for an effort approaching the final furlong and when he hit the front stayed on to win by half-a-length for owners Merchants & Missionaries.
