We had three winners over two days at Ripon. Amber Spark finished second on her seasonal reappearance and went one better under apprentice Sean Davis. They tracked the leaders and was pushed for the lead two furlongs from home. She stayed on strongly to win by two-and-a-quarter-lengths for Nick Bradley Racing.

Silver Mission picked up his first win on just his second start. The Dark Angel-colt was held up towards the rear by jockey Tony Hamilton. He made headway over the final two furlongs and chased the leaders over the final furlong. He got up on the line to win by a neck for owner Sheikh Hamed Dalmook Al Maktoum.

Borodin ran a really nice race to pick up the third win of his career. He tracked the leaders under Paddy Mathers and took up the running two furlongs from home. He stayed on well under pressure to win by a neck for owner Sir Robert Ogden.



Queen Penn finally got her soft ground and back in the winners enclosure. She raced keenly under Paddy Mathers at Thirsk and lead two furlongs from home. She was pressed towards the finish and showed a good attitude to stay on and win by a neck.

We then doubled up at the track with Borodin. He’s been a very consistent horse and it was great to see him get his head in front again for Sir Robert Ogden. He tracked the leader under Jack Garritty and started to press over the final two furlongs. He was hard pressed inside the final furlong and stayed on well to win by three-quarters-of-a-length.

Rene Mathis made all under Connor Murtagh to win at Wolverhampton. The eight-year-old has been a star for owner Dr Marwan Koukash and this was his second win this season.


Borodin picked up the first win of his career at Thirsk on just his second start. TheΒ High Chaparral-gelding tracked the leaders under jockey Jack Garritty. He was asked for an effort approaching the final furlong and lead over a furlong from home. He stayed on strongly to win by two-and-three-quarter-lengths for owner Sir Robert Ogden.
