LIGHTNING STRIKES AT HAMILTON

Grise Lightning picked up the first win of her career after a break of 326 days. She had been working really well but had to beat the odds on favourite of Roger Varian’s. She tracked the leaders under Jack Garritty and challenged approaching the final furlong. She chased down the favourite and got up to win by a neck for owners Middleham Park Racing.

We doubled up with Gabrial The Devil to hand owner Dr Marwan Koukash his 498th winner. He made all on the stands rail under apprentice Megan Nicholls. He was clear of his rivals approaching the final furlong and stayed on comfortably to win by five lengths.
