Marie Of Lyon put in a really dominant display to win the Pontefract feature just three days after winning at Brighton. Adam McNamara was again in the saddle and he took up the running after a good start. They were always travelling well and were clear of her rivals approaching the final furlong. She stayed on well to win by two-and-a-quarter-lengths for owner Clipper Logistics.
Mushaireb didn’t give jockey Jack Garritty the easiest of times. He was keen and didn’t handle the bend all that well. Add to that the really wet conditions and Jack losing an iron they did really well to get up and win for Al Shaqab Racing. He ended up winning with a bit in hand and he will have learnt lots for the experience.
