DOUBLE TOUCH & SHOWBIZZY SATURDAY WINNERS

It was a great start to Saturday with out first runner Double Touch winning the opener at Chester. The two-year-old Dutch Art colt had shown promise on his first two starts and he tracked the leaders under jockey David Nolan. He was always travelling well and was poised to challenge heading into the home straight. He didn’t get a clear run but when the gap opened he took up the lead and stayed on strongly to win by two-and-a-quarter-lengths. Well done to owners Nicholas Wrigley and Kevin Hart.

It was worth the long trip to Bath for Showbizzy. She was always in touch under jockey Shane Kelly and when he asked her to quicken she made headway on the outside. She battled for the lead inside the final furlong with Fleeting Dream and got the better of her rival to win by a neck. A great result for the Racegoers Club Owners Group.

SATURDAY WINNERS: SHOWBIZZY AND NORMANDIE LADY

Showbizzy has been very disappointing this season, she hasn’t looked like she wanted to race but having said that the Class 5 Handicap at Doncaster was the kind of race she should be winning and so we were delighted to see her do it so well. We put a visor on her for the first time and it made a difference. She was always prominent under jockey George Chaloner and when he asked her to pick up she immediately responded. She had the lead heading into the final furlong and stayed on strongly to win by two-and-a-quarter-lengths. Well done to the Racegoers Club Owners Group who have had to be patient.

We then doubled up with Normandie Lady at Hamilton. The three-year-old was held up in mid division by jockey David Nolan. They made headway over a furlong out and took up the lead inside the final furlong. They kept on to win by a length-and-a-half, securing her second win in five starts for owner Mr Phipps.
