It was a great day for owners Norman and Helen Steel who had travelled over to watch their horses run at Redcar. Forest Ranger was making his racecourse debut and he won in style. The Lawman colt was held up towards the rear by jockey Tony Hamilton and they started to make their move over the final furlong. They pulled clear of the rest of the field under hands and heels to win by a length. He looks an exciting prospect. Norman and Helen also had a second on the day with Reinstorm beaten a neck and Buccaneers Cove ran a solid race to finish third.
We doubled up on the card with Chiswick Bey. Adam McNamara in the saddle this time and he gave him a great ride to win at 14 to 1. He was held up in mid-division and made headway over the final two furlongs. He took up the lead inside the final furlong and stayed on to win by half-a-length for his first victory of the season.
