FRIDAY THREE-TIMER

It was another good day at the office with a three-timer on Friday. We started with a quick-fire double at Redcar with Paul in the saddle. Cognac Blue won the opener to pick up his first win. The Mayson-colt tracked the leaders and had the lead a furlong from home. He was challenged and held on well to win by half-a-length for owner Mrs Jane Newett.

It was great to see Absolute Dream also pick up his first win. He’s been knocking on the door all season! He stayed on really strongly in the soft ground when he had the lead a furlong from home. He won by three-quarters-of-a-length for owners Steve and Glen Clayton.

Amazing Michele was very impressive at Newcastle. She was always in contention under Paddy Mathers and was ridden clear entering the final furlong. She was eased down close home to win by three-and-a-quarter-lengths for Nick Bradley Racing.

FOUR WINNERS AT CHESTER

It’s been another great two days at Chester with four winners. Amazing Michele got the ball rolling winning for Nick Bradley Racing. She chased the leaders under James Sullivan and was second approaching the final two furlongs. She challenged inside the final furlong and got up on the line to force a photo finish with Hidden Steps. She got up to win by a short head.

We then had three winners for Dr Marwan Koukash. The first was Rene Mathis and it was great to see him get his head in front again at the age of eight. He made all under David Nolan and showed a good attitude when pressed approaching the finish. He stayed on well to win by three-quarters-of-a-length.

Penwotham bought up the treble on Friday. He chased the leaders and lead entering the final furlong. He stayed on to win by a length.

Gabrial The Wire then put in an empathetic performance on Saturday. He made all under Jack Grarritty and when asked for an effort on the turn for home he pulled clear. He was eased down to win by four-and-a-half-lengths.

AMAZING MICHELE WINS FIRST RACE

Amazing Michele won her first race on just her third start. She was always in contention under jockey Tony Hamilton and made headway over a furlong out. She took up the lead and stayed on strongly to win by a length-and-a-half for owners Nick Bradley Racing.
