ARAKHAN WINS CARLISLE BUMPER

It’s been a great few days for owners Yorkshire Connections Ltd with two winners from two runners in three days. Arakhan has run well on his previous two starts and showed a fantastic attitude to win the bumper at Carlisle. He was held up towards the back of the field by jockey Brian Hughes. He was pushed along three furlongs from home and took up the lead. He was challenged over the final furlong but battled to keep his head in front. He wasn’t for passing and stayed on to win by three-quaters-of-a-length.
