FIRST WIN FOR MRS HOO

Mrs Hoo picked up her first win on just her third start. She tracked the leader under Paul Hanagan and was asked for an effort at the two furlong pole. She battled to the front and stayed on with her ears pricked to win by a half-a-length. That’s the eighth winner of the year for the Richard Fahey Ebor Racing Club.

ROTHERHITHE GETS BACK ON TRACK

Rotherhithe hasn’t been the easiest to get to grips with, she isn’t a fan of the starting stalls and she disappointed on her last run. Lots of hard work has been put into getting her into the stalls and it paid off at Leicester. She was keenly away under jockey Paddy Mathers and was always prominent. She lead two furlongs out and was never going to be challenged. She won by an impressive five-lengths for Franconson Partners.

SIX IN A ROW

Following on from Thursday night’s three-timer we then had another three winners on Friday to give us six in a row. We had a double at Musselburgh starting with Call Him Al. He picked up his first win on his fourth start. It didn’t all go to plan with him hanging on the bend. He was headed inside the final two furlongs but rallied under Paul Hanagan to lead again approaching the furlong pole. He stayed on well to win by a neck.

It was fantastic to see Crotchet get her head in front. She’s been ultra consistent being placed in four of her six starts this season. She chased the leaders and had the lead inside the final furlong. She stayed on to win by three-quarters-of-a-length for Cheveley Park Stud.

Good Tyne Girl picked up her second win on just her fifth start. She tracked the leaders under Paddy Mathers and mounted a challenge over the final two furlongs. She had the lead at the furlong pole and stayed on to win by a length for Middleham Park Racing.

THURSDAY THREE-TIMER

Zip Along made it three wins in a row and remains unbeaten after a strong performance at Haydock. She tracked the leaders under Paul Hanagan and was asked for an effort over the final two furlongs. She took up the lead and despite hanging left she pulled clear to win by a neck for owner Sultan Ali.

Stewardess made it two wins in a row for owner Katie Nolan. She was always in touch under jockey Connor Murtagh and had the lead a furlong out. She stayed on really strongly to win by two-lengths.

Amber Spark was our third winner of the day and her first win of her career. She tracked the pace under Tony Hamilton and started to put pressure on the leader approaching the final furlong. She showed a good attitude and stayed on strongly to win by two-and-three-quarter-lengths for Nick Bradley Racing.

VENTURA OCEAN PICKS UP FIRST WIN

Ventura Ocean picked up his first win at Pontefract. He had finished second on his previous two starts and showed a good attitude to make all under jockey Paul Hanagan. He was clear of his rivals approaching the final furlong and was eased down to win by a length-and-a-half for owners Middleham Park Racing.

 

LA SIOUX SPRINGS A SURPRISE

La Sioux has been a bit disappointing of late and was sent off 33 to 1 at Nottingham. She travelled strongly under Tony Hamilton and tracked the leaders on the outside. She was pushed along two furlongs from home and stayed on strongly towards the finish to get up and win by two-and-a-quarter-lengths.

WINDSOR CROSS MAKES ALL AT RIPON

Windsor Cross made all to win at Ripon under Paul Hanagan. Richard decided to leave the blinkers off and it seemed to do the trick. He was clear of his rivals entering the final furlong and stayed on to win by one-and-three-quarter-lengths. There were plenty of members from the Richard Fahey Ebor Racing Club to welcome him back into the winners enclosure.

KIMBERELLA WINS QUEENSFERRY AGAIN

Kimberella made it two wins on the bounce in the Listed Queensferry Stakes at Chester. He’s such a great horse and always gives his best. He didn’t get the best of starts but Paul Hanagan managed to get him tucked in on the rail following the leaders. He mounted a challenge on the leader Major Jumbo inside the final furlong and he battled hard to get upsides. He showed what a big heart he has to get up on the line and win by a neck for owner Clive Titcomb.

LIGHTNING STRIKES AT HAMILTON

Grise Lightning picked up the first win of her career after a break of 326 days. She had been working really well but had to beat the odds on favourite of Roger Varian’s. She tracked the leaders under Jack Garritty and challenged approaching the final furlong. She chased down the favourite and got up to win by a neck for owners Middleham Park Racing.

We doubled up with Gabrial The Devil to hand owner Dr Marwan Koukash his 498th winner. He made all on the stands rail under apprentice Megan Nicholls. He was clear of his rivals approaching the final furlong and stayed on comfortably to win by five lengths.

MORE THAN THIS GLORIOUS AT GOODWOOD

More Than This remains unbeaten after a dominant performance at Goodwood. The Dutch Art-colt made all under Paul Hanagan and showed a good attitude when challenged over a furlong out. He stayed on strongly to win by a length-and-a-half. A great result for owners John Rhodes and Peter Timmins – their first Glorious Goodwood winner.
