It’s now 25 winners in April so far following a double at Beverley. Starlight Romance has been a consistent filly and it was great to see her get her head in front in a competitive handicap. She tracked the leaders on the rail under jockey Sammy Jo Bell. She was given a patient ride and they had to wait until the final furlong for the gap to open up but when it did Starlight Romance powered clear to win by a length-and-a-half. Well done to owners Norman and Helen Steel.

Atteq then won the next race on the card by an impressive seven lengths. He tracked the leaders under jockey Adam McNamara and they took up the lead heading into the final furlong. They pulled clear for a  memorable win for Al Shaqab Racing.
