A DAY OF SURPRISES

Monday was a day full of surprises and the first was Primeiro Boy who won at Wolverhampton at 33 to 1. He was held up by apprentice Sean Davis and was ridden for an effort two furlongs from home. He ran on well under pressure and got up to win by half-a-length.

We then doubled up this time with Micronize who was sent off at 25 to 1. Sean was again in the saddle and the broke well from the stalls. They chased the leaders and battled over the final final. He got up to win by a neck for owners Nick Bradley Racing. Sean went on to win a 7,955 to 1 treble.

Robeam then picked up his first win on the 15th time of asking. He travelled the best he ever had but still did his best to get himself beat running into all sorts of trouble over the final furlong. He was given a great ride by Paddy Mathers who didn’t give up and they got up on the line to force a photo. Robeam won by a short head.

TIGER POUNCES TO FIFTH COURSE & DISTANCE WIN

We had a double at Musselburgh on their final day to bring up ten winners for the season at the track. Primeiro Boy has been knocking on the door but finally picked up his first win of his career. He tracked the leaders under apprentice Connor Murtagh and was pushed for an effort approaching the final two furlongs. He had the lead a furlong out and stayed on well under pressure to win by a short head.

Gabrial The Tiger loves Musselburgh and he picked up his fifth course and distance win. He made all under Paul Hanagan and showed a fantastic attitude to stay on when challenged over the final furlong. He wasn’t for beating and won by half-a-length.
