It was another great Saturday for team Musley Bank with a five-timer. Roderick got the ball rolling winning on debut at Musselburgh. The Pastoral Pursuits colt was slowly away and sat towards the rear under apprentice Connor Murtagh. He started to get the hang of things and made an impression approaching the final furlong. He took the lead and stayed on to win by three-quarters-of-a-length for owner and breeder Franconson Partners.

Connor then doubled up with Ventura Gold. He sat towards the rear and creeped into the race on the rail. He chased down the leaders and was switched to the outside to get a clear run approaching the final furlong. He kept on well to win by three-quarters-of-a-length for Middleham Park Racing to hand them their 30th winner of the season.

Kodyanna showed a brilliant attitude to battle to victory in the Hilary Needler at Beverley on just her second start. The Kodiac filly sat in the middle of the field under Paul Hanagan and was asked for an effort approaching the final furlong. Paul had to be patient for the gaps to appear and when she sae daylight she picked up and battled to the line. She got up to win by a head for The Cool Silk Partnership.

Gangland won the final race on the Beverley card for owners Merchants and Missionaries. The step up in trip suited and he made all under Paul. He was clear of the rest of the field approaching the final furlong and was never challenged. He won by two-and-a-quarter-lengths.

Scofflaw won the feature on the card at Catterick coming form last to first under Connor Beasley. Sent off at 10 to 1 he made the most of a fast pace to pounce late and get up and win by half-a-length for owners Peter Timmins and John Rhodes. The five-timer meant we went past the million pound mark in prize money. Well done Team Musley Bank.


Gangland has been running consistently this season finishing second three times but it was great to see him get his head in front at Yarmouth. He was always in touch under jockey David Nolan and switched left approaching the final furlong. He stayed on strongly and got up to win by half a length for owners Merchants & Missionaries. He now heads to the horse and training sales next week.
