Royal Connoisseur was given a great ride by apprentice jockey Natalie Hambling to win at Hamilton. He’s not the most straightforward of horses and he does like to hang. He was always prominent and hit the front two furlongs from home. His rivals came back at him but he wasn’t for beating and put in another effort to pull clear by two-lengths. That’s his third win this season, a great result for owners Steve and Glen Clayton and Mr Blower.
