DOUBLE UP OVER YORK’S FINAL TWO DAYS

We had two winners on the final two days of York’s season. The first was Crownthorpe for the Richard Fahey Ebor Racing Club. Sean Davis had the ride and he hasn’t had the best relationship with this horse, falling off him twice including at York. They were always in touch and he was asked an effort two furlongs from home. He was ridden to lead approaching the furlong pole and stayed on really strongly to win by two-and-a-quarter-lengths.

Coolagh Forest won over course and distance last month and he was impressive once again. He tracked the leaders under Paul Hanagan and took up the lead approaching the final furlong. He stayed on well under pressure and found more again to win by three-lengths for owner Alan Harte.

COOLAGH FOREST MAKES ALL IN YORK WIN

Coolagh Forest made all under Paul Hanagan to win at York. He showed a great attitude when challenged over the final two furlongs and pulled further clear to get up and win by two-and-a-quarter-lengths. A nice win for owner Alan Harte and a good birthday present for Paul.

TOUGH DISPLAYS FROM COOLAGH & CLAIRE

We continued our good run at Musselburgh with two more winners. Coolagh Forest looks to be progressing into a really nice three-year-old. He tracked the leaders under Paul Hanagan and had to wait for a gap to open over the final two furlongs. When it did he pulled clear of his rivals and won going away. He is sure to have a hefty hike for his six-length win but he looks a very exciting prospect for owner Alan Harte.

Claire Underwood is such a tough filly and she made all to hand us a double. She was given a brilliant ride by apprentice Sean Davis and when she was challenged over the final furlong she just kept finding more. She showed a brilliant attitude to win by a length-and-three-quarters for The Parker Partnership.

FOREST & GOLD WIN AT MUSSELBURGH

Coolagh Forest was very consistent as a two-year-old and he got his three-year-old off to the best start winning at Musselburgh. He tracked the leaders and had work to do approaching the final furlong. He was switched left under Paul Hanagan and showed a determined attitude to run down the leader and get up and win by a neck for owner Alan Harte.

Ventura Gold made all under apprentice Sean Davis to win for the second time this month. Sean was also onboard for his win at Leicester and they’ve struck up a good partnership. Ventura Gold showed a brilliant attitude when headed in the final furlong to find that bit more and get up on the line to win by a neck. There were plenty of Middleham Park owners there to welcome them back.

 

COOLAGH FOREST DETERMINED TO WIN

Coolagh Forest showed a fantastic attitude to battle to victory at Wolverhampton to pick up his first win on just his second start. He tracked the leaders under Tony Hamilton and had a lot of ground to make up on the leader approaching the final furlong. He dug deep to get on terms and got up on the line to win by a nose for owner Alan Harte.
