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.


Tatlisu went one better when finishing second at Ayr earlier this month when winning at Ripon. He was held up by apprentice jockey Connor Murtagh and started to make headway over the final three furlongs. He lead over a furlong out and pulled clear of the rest of the field to win by two lengths for Middleham Park Racing.


Theo’s Lolly ran a ran strong race to win at Ripon under Tony Hamilton. He tracked the leaders in third and took up the lead over the final furlong. He kept on well and was eased down before the finish. A good result for owner Martin Macleod.


Masterpaver has been a really consistent horse since joining us and it was great to see him win again. He tracked the leaders in third under jockey Adam McNamara and challenged approaching the final furlong. When he took up the lead he kept on well to win by two-lengths. The late Mr and Mrs Riney would have loved to have seen him win.


Ribchester is now the best miler in the world after winning the Group One Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot. He had been the short priced favourite for the race since winning the Lockinge at Newbury and it was fantastic to see him win again in such great style. Drawn one Richard was worried the runners may bounce out and race on the stand side so we sent our pacemaker Toscanini off at blistering speed down the centre of the track under Paul Hanagan. They raced down the middle and Ribchester settled nicely under William Buick. Ribchester took up the lead in the final furlong and although he did hang left he showed that brilliant turn of foot to win by a length-and-a-quarter. He broke the track record and confirmed that he goes on any ground.

William Buick loves the horse and was delighted with the performance as was owner Sheikh Mohammed.

He now has a couple of options the Sussex Stakes at Goodwood or the race he won in France last year. They are just 10 days apart so we will get him home and make a plan.

A big thank you is needed to John Murphy who rides Ribchetser every day. He has been instrumental in helping him to settle. Everyone at Musley Bank has done a fantastic job with all our horses and lets hope for many more winners.


Indomeneo made a promising start to his racing career at Newcastle last month finishing second and went one better at Wetherby. The Piccolo colt made all under jockey Tony Hamilton and showed a fantastic attitude when challenged over the final furlong. He was headed a couple of times but battled back to get up and win by a head for owners Middleham Park Racing.

Full Of Promise then won at Carlisle for the Richard Fahey Ebor Racing Club. Paul Hanagan in the saddle this time and he held her up behind the leaders and only started to make a move approaching the final furlong. When they hit the front they powered clear to win by two-and-a-quarter-lengths.


International Man made a fantastic start to his racing career winning at York. He chased the leading pair under jockey Jack Garritty and was second entering the final two furlongs. He took up the lead inside the final furlong and stayed on well to win by a length-and-a-half. He’ll come on for the run and looks a nice prospect for owner Phil Smith.


There were two striking displays at Nottingham. First was the two-year-old Great Prospector. He’s a horse we like and we were surprised he was sent off such a big price. The Elzaam colt was held up towards the rear of the field by Paul Hanagan and made headway approaching the final furlong. When he hit the front he pulled clear to win by a dominant two-lengths for owners Mr and Mrs Cotton.

George Bowen then powered to victory winning by four-and-a-half-lengths in the class 3 Handicap. To say he’s been frustrating would be an understatement so to see him win so well was fantastic. Owner Mick Scaife has had to be so patient and George finally repaid him.


Dance Diva made it two wins in a row with another good display at Haydock. She tracked the leaders under Paul Hanagan and lead entering the final furlong. She stayed on well to win by a length and she will have learnt again for the run. A great result for Cheveley Park Stud.

Danehill Desert then won at Hamilton under jockey Tony Hamilton. They tracked the leaders and was ridden to lead inside the final furlong. They were challenged and headed by Camacho Chief but Danehill Desert battled back and got up on the line to win by a short head.



Rubis ran well in May after a break of 147 days finishing third and she followed up on that performance with a win at Ayr. She broke well from the stalls and was challenged for the lead by Reinas Queen. Paul was happy to take a lead and Rubis was always travelling well. They made a challenge two furlongs from home and when they took up the lead stayed on strongly to win by one-and-a-quarter-lengths.
