War Tiger made it two wins in a row despite still being very green. He was keen under Tony Hamilton but did settle when he was able to get a lead. He was sat towards the rear and was pushed wide on the turn from home. He showed a good attitude to get his head in front and stayed on really nicely to win by three-quarters-of-a-length. There still looks a lot to look forward to with this War Front-colt.

Gabrial The Tiger made all under Paul Hanagan after flying out the stalls. He was headed in the final furlong but showed a great attitude to battle back and get up and win by half-a-length. It was certainly a night for the Tiger’s.


Royal Cosmic put in a very impressive performance at Newcastle to make it two wins in a row. She tracked the leaders and made progress over the final two furlongs. She pulled clear under apprentice Sebastian Woods and stayed on strongly to win by seven lengths for owners the Cosmic Cases.


Claire Underwood is super consistent. Since joining us she was won three times and been placed on all of her other three starts. She was in touch of the leading group under Tony Hamilton. She made progress over the final two furlongs and showed a good attitude to battle over the final furlong. She lead with 100 yards to go and stayed on to win by a head for owners the Parker Partnership.


Coolagh Magic made it two wins on the bounce after following up on his success at Newcastle with victory at Southwell. He was always prominent under Tony Hamilton and had the lead halfway. He stayed on strongly and was never challenged. He stayed on to win by two-and-a-quarter-lengths for owner Alan Harte.


Royal Cosmic showed a good attitude to win at Southwell for owners The Cosmic Cases. She was always in touch under apprentice jockey Sebastian Woods. They made headway over the final three furlongs and had the lead at the furlong pole. They stayed on well under pressure and held on to win by a half-a-length.


War Tiger improved on his first two starts to put in an impressive performance at Wolverhampton to beat the odds on favourite. He made all under jockey Tony Hamilton and was always travelling nicely. He started to put pressure on his rival on the turn for home and was the clear winner entering the final furlong. He stayed on to win by three-and-a-half-lengths for owner Mrs Richard Henry and looks an exciting prospect for the season ahead.


Charming Kid made the trip over to Dundalk worth while with an impressive victory under Barry McHugh. He was sent off favourite and justified the support. He was always prominent and looked the winner a long way from home. He was always travelling strongly and pulled clear of his rivals approaching the final furlong. He stayed on strongly to win by two-and-three-quarter-lengths for owners The Cool Silk Partnership.

It was the first time Barry had ridden at the track and his dad was there to see him win. Marcus and Joel had taken Charming Kid over the water.

Zip has been every consistent, he’s been placed on 4 of his seven starts so it was great to see him get his head in front. He did take a keen hold under Barry McHugh and was sat second for much of the race. He took up the lead at the furlong pole and stayed on well under pressure to win by a length-and-three-quarters. There were plenty there from The Knavesmire Partnership to welcome him back into the winners enclosure.


Coolagh Magic was our first winner of 2019, and he was impressive at Newcastle. The Sepoy-colt has been placed on three of his six starts and was always travelling nicely under jockey Barry McHugh. He pressed the leader and took up the running two furlongs from home. He was clear entering the final furlong and stayed on strongly to win by two-and-three-quarter-lengths. He looks a nice prospect this year for owner Alan Harte.
