CROTCHET WINS MUSSELBURGH FEATURE

Crotchet is a super consistent filly and she showed a great attitude to win the feature race at Musselburgh. She was held up at the rear of the field by apprentice jockey Connor Murtagh. She made headway approaching the final two furlongs. She didn’t get a clear run and had to be switched left. She battled over the final furlong and stayed on to win by a length-and-a-quarter for Cheveley Park Stud.

SIX IN A ROW

Following on from Thursday night’s three-timer we then had another three winners on Friday to give us six in a row. We had a double at Musselburgh starting with Call Him Al. He picked up his first win on his fourth start. It didn’t all go to plan with him hanging on the bend. He was headed inside the final two furlongs but rallied under Paul Hanagan to lead again approaching the furlong pole. He stayed on well to win by a neck.

It was fantastic to see Crotchet get her head in front. She’s been ultra consistent being placed in four of her six starts this season. She chased the leaders and had the lead inside the final furlong. She stayed on to win by three-quarters-of-a-length for Cheveley Park Stud.

Good Tyne Girl picked up her second win on just her fifth start. She tracked the leaders under Paddy Mathers and mounted a challenge over the final two furlongs. She had the lead at the furlong pole and stayed on to win by a length for Middleham Park Racing.

TWO-YEAR-OLDS IMPRESS AT NOTTINGHAM

We won the opening two races on the Nottingham card and both were in impressive fashion. Crotchet was making her debut and she’s been going well at home. The Lethal Force filly was held up by jockey Jack Garritty and started to challenge over the final two furlongs. She was switched left and stayed on really well to win by a half a length. The first and second were well clear of the rest of the field. Another good win for Cheveley Park Stud.

Sands Of Mali then put in a dominant performance on just his second start under Paul Hanagan. The Panis colt tracked the leader and hit the front two furlongs from home. He wasn’t for catching and pulled clear to win by three-and-three-quarter-lengths for The Cool Silk Partnership.
