TIGER POUNCES TO FIFTH COURSE & DISTANCE WIN

We had a double at Musselburgh on their final day to bring up ten winners for the season at the track. Primeiro Boy has been knocking on the door but finally picked up his first win of his career. He tracked the leaders under apprentice Connor Murtagh and was pushed for an effort approaching the final two furlongs. He had the lead a furlong out and stayed on well under pressure to win by a short head.

Gabrial The Tiger loves Musselburgh and he picked up his fifth course and distance win. He made all under Paul Hanagan and showed a fantastic attitude to stay on when challenged over the final furlong. He wasn’t for beating and won by half-a-length.

SECOND WIN OF THE SEASON FOR SEMPRE PRESTO

Sempre Presto has been running consistently well and she picked up her second win of the season at Pontefract. She had to race fairly wide under jockey Paul Hanagan after drawing a wide stall.

MR DIAMOND SPARKLES AT NOTTINGHAM

Mr Diamond picked up a valuable prize at Nottingham when securing the second win of his career. He was held up in mid-division by jockey Paul Hanagan and started to make headway three furlongs from home. He challenged inside the final furlong and battled well to get up and win by a short head.

WINS FOR FIREWATER & BILLY BOND

We doubled up at Ayr with Firewater and Billy Bond. Firewater picked up the first win of her career in the opener. She pressed the leader under Tony Hamilton and was driven to lead over the final two furlongs.

Crotchet is a super consistent filly and she showed a great attitude to win the feature race at Musselburgh. She was held up at the rear of the field by apprentice jockey Connor Murtagh. She made headway approaching the final two furlongs. She didn’t get a clear run and had to be switched left. She battled over the final furlong and stayed on to win by a length-and-a-quarter for Cheveley Park Stud.

ILLUSIONS TOASTS WITH GIN

Illusions picked up the first win of her career at Pontefract under jockey Paddy Mathers. She was slightly hampered at the start and had to chase the leaders out wide. She rallied over the final two furlongs and stayed on strongly to take up the lead. She stayed on well to win by  a length-and-a-half.

We then doubled up with Gin In The Inn. He’s been disappointing of late, had a terrible draw and was sent off at 25 to 1.

GROUP 3 SUCCESS FOR MR LUPTON

They picked up strongly on the soft ground and pulled clear of Take Cover to win by three-quarters-of-a-length for owner Noel Kershaw.

Apprentice Oakley Brown had another day to remember winning the Ayr Bronze Cup on Lucky Lucky Man. The 16-year-old won on the three-year-old at Newcastle in July and they’ve built a good partnership.

He hit the front and pulled clear to win by a length-and-three-quarters for the Musley Bank Partnership.

ZAP WINS AT LEOPARDSTOWN

The trip over the water to Leopardstown proved fruitful with Zap pouncing late to win the Premier Handicap. He was always travelling strongly in mid-division under jockey Chris Hayes.
