Six Strings is a horse we’ve always liked. The two-year-old Requinto colt was second on debut but suffered a setback after his second run and had to have a break of 136 days. He was given a confident ride by jockey Tony Hamilton at Newcastle on his reappearance. He was held up towards the rear but was shaken up to challenge over the final two furlongs. He took up the lead under a hands and heels ride and stayed on to win by a short head.
