ANDOK WINS AGAIN

Andok made it two wins on the bounce with another strong performance at Doncaster. He was held up by apprentice jockey Sebastian Woods and started to make progress over the final two furlongs. He took up the lead a furlong out and stayed on strongly to win by a length. There were great pictures with Kieran leading up after the race, not sure what Andok said to Seb?

 

2 CLOSE CALLS IN REDCAR PHOTO FINISHES

King Of Tonga and Andok were both produced right on the line by jockey Dave Nolan to win at Redcar. King Of Tonga improved for his debut run at Beverley where he finished third to show a good attitude to battle at Redcar. He chased the leaders and challenged over the final furlong. He crossed the winning line with Rathbone and Freed From Desire. The judge was needed and the photo showed he had got up to win by a nose.

Andok was held up in mid-division and started to make headway approaching the final furlong. He battled to the line and again got up on the line with Nuits St Georges. The photo was needed and he had got up to win by a nose.

DOUBLE DELIGHT AT DONCASTER

The St Leger meeting got off to a great start with two winners on the first day. Andok won well on debut and he showed a great attitude to win on his second start. He was always in a prominent position under jockey Tony Hamilton and they had the lead inside the final furlong. He had to battle to victory with Appointed but got up to win by a head. He’s a horse with a lot of scope and one to look forward to as a three-year-old.

We doubled up with Stamp Hill for owners Merchant and Missionaries. Different tactics by Tony this time who held the Zoffany gelding up towards the rear. They made headway over the final two furlongs and once they took up the lead they stayed on well to win by a head.

EYE CATCHING DEBUT BY ANDOK AT REDCAR

Andok overcame a wide draw to win well on debut at Redcar. The Elzaam colt is a horse we liked but being drawn in one wasn’t ideal. He was held up behind the leaders by jockey Tony Hamilton and looked to be travelling well. He didn’t get a clear run when trying to challenge over the final two furlongs but when he got a bit of daylight he powered clear to win by two-and-a-quarter lengths. He was bought at the breeze up sales and looks like a nice prospect for owner Niall O’Keeffe.
