LISTED SUCCESS FOR MAYON’S PRIVATE MATTER

We had a great result over in France with Private Matter winning the Lister race at Maisons-Laffitte. The son of Mayson was always prominent under jockey Olivier Peslier. He moved well in the soft ground and always looked to be travelling better than his rivals. He had the lead over the final two furlongs and never looked like being caught. He stayed on to win by a length-and-a-half, a great result for Cheveley Park Stud. We had two other runners in the race for Nick Bradley Racing, Vona finished third and Megan Lily fourth.

LISTED SUCCESS FOR VONA AT YORK

Vona’s listed success at York’s Dante meeting was to be quite honest a bit of a surprise. She ran well at Chester but this was a big step up and she was sent off at 33 to 1. She was always prominent under jockey Jack Garritty and looked to have a chance of grabbing a place. She wanted to do better than that and when Jack asked her to pick up she obliged and pulled clear to beat the favourite Boater by a length. Jack told Channel 4 Racing that he thinks there’s more to come from Vona while Richard said ‘ shocked is the word I would use, good shock.’ She’s owned by a new syndicate set up by Nick Bradley and those involved were delighted, they may now have Royal Ascot in their sights.
