ANOTHER TOUCH BOOKS FINALS PLACE

Another Touch made it three wins in a row on the all-weather to book his place in the All-Weather Finals at Lingfield over the Easter weekend. Barry McHugh has been in the saddle for all three of the victories and he gave him a lovely patient ride at Newcastle. He had to wait for the gap to open approaching the final furlong but when it did he picked up nicely. He stayed on to well to win by three-quarters-of-a-length for owners Nicholas Wrigley and Kevin Hart.

NEW YEAR’S EVE LINGFIELD DOUBLE

Another Touch made it two wins in-a-row on the all weather following up his success at Chelmsford with victory at Lingfield. He was given a really nice ride by jockey Barry McHugh. They sat in midfield and made headway on the turn for home. He was always travelling strongly and chased down the leaders. He took up the lead well inside the final furlong and pulled clear to win by two-lengths for owners Nicholas Wrigley and Kevin Hart.

Furzig then handed us the double under Connor Murtagh. He took a keen hold and sat in midfield. He chased down the leaders over the final two furlongs and showed a great attitude to battle his way to the front. He got up on the line to win by a neck for owners Mr and Mrs P Ashton.

ANOTHER TOUCH BACK IN WINNERS ENCLOSURE

It was great to see Another Touch back in the winners enclosure. He was always travelling well under Barry McHugh at Chelmsford. He battled for the lead and hit the front over the final furlong. He won by three-quarters-of-a-length for owners Nicholas Wrigley and Kevin Hart.

LISTED SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER TOUCH

It was a fantastic end to the Go Racing In Yorkshire Summer Festival with Listed success for Another Touch at Pontefract. He tracked the leaders under Tony Hamilton and battled Custom Cut over the final furlong. He showed a great attitude to get up and win by a neck. A great result for owners Nicholas Wrigley and Kevin Hart.

ANOTHER TOUCH & OUR LITTLE PONY WIN WELL

We had another across-the-card double at Beverly and Nottingham on Wednesday. Our Little Pony finished second on her debut and went one better in the opener at Beverley. She showed a fantastic attitude despite being the smallest horse in the race by some margin. She chased the leaders under jockey Paul Hanagan but was short of room when wanting to make a challenge. She was switched left and when she got some daylight she battled to the front and stayed on strongly to win by a length-and-a-quarter.

Another Touch then picked up a much deserved win at Nottingham. He’s been running well in some big handicaps and picking up a win will do his confidence some good. He was always in contention under jockey Tony Hamilton they lead inside the final furlong and pulled clear to win by two-and-a-half-lengths.

 

6,068/1 SATURDAY TREBLE

To say it had been a frustrating start to August would be an understatement with 15 placed horses, 8 of which were second. Of all of our runners have been running well but Saturday did throw up a few big priced winners across three different tracks. Normandy Knight got the ball rolling at Redcar. Sent off at 20 to 1 the four-year-old chased the leaders under jockey Paddy Mathers. They went second over the final two furlongs and battled with Quick N Quirky to the line. They got up to win by a neck for owners Norman and Helen Steel.

It was then the turn of Another Touch at Newmarket and this time Tony Hamilton was in the saddle. He chased the leaders and started to make a challenge inside the final furlong. He didn’t have much room and was switched left and he stayed on well to beat Sir Roderic by a neck. A nice 16 to 1 winner for owners Nicholas Wrigley and Kevin Hart.
