NEWCASTLE DOUBLE

Defence Treaty made up a lot of ground to win at Newcastle. The Dandy Man-gelding was held up towards the rear by jockey Danny Tudhope. He made headway towards the stand side and chased the leaders down over the final furlong. He stayed on really impressively to get up and win by a length for owners Clipper Logistics.

Oti Ma Boati made it two wins in a row beating the odds on favourite in the process. She sat towards the rear under Tony Hamilton and was pushed along two furlongs from home. She made headway over the final furlong and kept on well to lead towards the finish. She stayed on to win by a length.

WINS FOR OTI MA BOATI & DEFENCE TREATY

The horses are running really well and we had another two winners on Monday. Oti Ma Boati made the perfect start to her racing career winning on debut at Pontefract. She was slowly away and did run green under Tony Hamilton. She started to get the hang of things and made headway approaching the final furlong. She battled well and got up on the line to win by a neck.

Defence Treaty picked up his first win at Leicester. The lightly raced three-year-old tracked the leaders under Paul Mulrennan. He was challenged over the final two furlongs and lost a place but rallied over the final furlong and stayed on really strongly. He won by one-and-three-quarter lengths for owner Clipper Logistics.
