It’s now 35 winners for team Musley Bank this month following a double at Hamilton. Spirit Of Zeb got his first win of the season after finishing third on his first two starts after a 151 day break. He tracked the leaders under jockey Adam McNamara and had a good position on the inside rail. He took up the lead inside the final furlong and battled with Born Innocent to the line. He got up to win by a short head. That’s Adam’s 20th winner of the season and his claim is now down to 5lb.
David’s Duchess has been second on her first two starts this season so it was great to see her win so impressively. She only faced two rivals and they weren’t able to mount a challenge. She made all under Tony Hamilton and when he asked her to pull clear over the last two furlongs she obliged. She won by two-and-a-half-lengths on the bridle.
