It was fantastic to see two two-year-olds maintain their unbeaten records after both winning first time out. Senator was very green when he won at Leicester last month and he still has a lot of maturing to do. The son of Frankel was held up just behind the leaders at Carlisle under jockey Tony Hamilton and they took up the lead approaching the final furlong. He ran on strongly to win by a length-and-three-quarters for Cheveley Park Stud.
The Wagon Wheel showed a great attitude to win at York on the first day of the Ebor meeting. She was always prominent under jockey Paddy Mathers and they had the lead two furlongs from home. She still showed a little bit of inexperience and edged right in the final furlong but stayed on powerfully to win by a length-and-three-quarters. It was great to see her follow up on her win at Beverley in July so convincingly.
