NEWCASTLE DOUBLE – DUBAI ACCAIM & WIRRAL GIRL

We had a nice double at Newcastle with Wirral Girl getting the ball rolling in the first race on the card. Russell Harris was onboard in the apprentice handicap and they were always prominent. They sat behind the leader and took up the running approaching the final two furlongs. They stayed on really strongly and won by an impressive eight-lengths for the Richard Fahey Ebor Racing Club.

Dubai Acclaim picked up the second win of his career. He tracked the leader under jockey Paddy Mathers and had the lead inside the final furlong. He stayed on well under pressure and held on to win by a neck. Owners Steve and Glen Clayton were there to welcome him back into the winners enclosure.

100TH WINNER – BEVERLEY TREBLE

The horses are running really well and a treble at Beverley took us to 102 winners for the season. Chiswick Bey bought up the hundred but he had to share the race in a dead heat. He was held up in mid division by Paul Hanagan and started to make a move over the final three furlongs. He chased the leader Iberica Road over the final furlong and the pair crossed the line together. The judge couldn’t separate them so they shared the spoils.

Wirral Girl was disappointing on her debut but she put that run behind her to put in a dominant performance. She made all and went clear over the final furlong. She stayed on to win by a commanding two-and-a-half-lengths.

Vaulted has been a very consistent filly, she’s been placed four times but it was fantastic to see her win. She was held up behind the leaders and although she did hang right she was in contention approaching the final furlong. She had to battle for the win but showed a good attitude to get up by a head.
