FIRST WIN OF YEAR FOR CHISWICK BEY

Chiswick Bey put in another solid performance to win at Newcastle under apprentice Natalie Hambling. You know when Chiswick runs he’s always going to try his best and he was given a patient ride by Natalie. They were always prominent and started to run down the leader two furlongs out. He took up the lead inside the final furlong and kept on well under pressure to win by three-quarters-of-a-length.

ENERGIA FOX WINS AT NEWCASTLE

It’s been a strong start to February and it was great to see Eneriga Fox get her first win. She moved to us last year and had to have a break of nearly a year. She tracked the leaders at Newcastle under jockey Paul Hanagan and started to challenge over the final two furlongs. She took up the lead inside the final furlong and despite edging right stayed on to win by a length for owner Dr Marwan Koukash.

WINS FOR NIMR & RIGHT ACTION

Tw0 runners at Wolverhampton and two winners. Nimr got the ball rolling in the opening race on the card. He tracked the leaders under jockey Tony Hamilton and was second heading into the final furlong. He battled and got his head in front and stayed on to win by half-a-length for Al Shaqab Racing. That’s his second win in three starts.

Right Action picked up his first win of his racing career. Tony was once again in the saddle, they sat in mid division and started to make headway heading into the final furlong. They held on towards the finish to win by half-a-length for Middleham Park Racing.

BIRTHDAY WINNER

We had just the one runner yesterday but Footlight ensured it was a good birthday for Richard when winning at Southwell. She’s been second on three of her last four starts so it was great to see her get her head in front. She took up a good position under jockey Paul Hanagan, tracking the leaders. She was travelling strongly and when she was asked to pick up inside the final furlong she obliged and stayed on strongly to win by a length. A great result for owners and breeders Worksop Manor Stud.

MEDHI REPAYS PATIENCE

Owner Dr Marwan Koukash was rewarded for his patience when Medhi battled to victory at Newcastle. He’s been placed twice on two of his four starts after more than a year off the track. He tracked the leaders under jockey Paul Hanagan and started to challenge over the final two furlongs. He took up the lead inside the final furlong and stayed on strongly to win by three-quarters-of-a-length.

MUM’S THE WORD BOLTS UP AT WOLVERHAMPTON

Mum’s The Word won well at Wolverhampton on her third start since joining us. The daughter of Mayson made all under jockey Barry McHugh. She was always travelling well and on the turn for home she was going the best. She pulled clear of the rest of the field two furlongs from home and stayed on impressively to win by five lengths. A great result for Nick Bradley Racing & Merchant & Missionaries.

A WINNING DOSE

Dose picked up the first win of her career at Southwell. She’s always been a consistent filly, she’s been placed five times but had failed to get her head in front. She was previously owned my Cheveley Park but now runs for the Richard Fahey Ebor Racing Club. Sent off at 6 to 1 she was always prominent under Jack Garritty. They hit the front before the final furlong which was probably a bit sooner than ideal but she showed a great attitude when challenged all the way to the line by Playful Dude. She stayed on gamely to win by  short head.

WESTERN PRESENCE GETS FIRST WIN

It was a good day for owner/breeder Dan Gilbert as Western Presence picked up his first success at Southwell. The three-year-old tracked the leading pair under jockey Tony Hamilton and made headway over the final two furlongs. They took up the lead approaching the final furlong and stayed on well to win by half-a-length. Western Presence’s half brother Hold On Magnolia ran well to finish third later on the card.

DUBAI ART WINS MAIDEN

Dubai Art made a pleasing debut at Newcastle in December finishing third and the Dutch Art colt went one better at Lingfield. He was always prominent under jockey Jack Garritty and they chased the leader a furlong from home. He is still a bit green and wandered but stayed on strongly to get up and win by a head for owner Sheikh Rashid Dalmook Al Maktoum.

 

TATLISU BACK WHERE HE BELONGS

Middleham Park Racing’s patience in Tatlisu paid off when he won a valuable handicap at Newcastle. The seven-year-old hasn’t won since his victory in the Ayr Silver Cup but after a couple of breaks from the track he’s gradually been getting back to his best. He was held up towards the rear of the field and always looked to be travelling strongly. He was hampered and bumped as he started to make an impression inside the final furlong and showed a great attitude to battle to the front and stay on to win by a length-and-three-quarters.
