We had two winners on the final two days of York’s season. The first was Crownthorpe for the Richard Fahey Ebor Racing Club. Sean Davis had the ride and he hasn’t had the best relationship with this horse, falling off him twice including at York. They were always in touch and he was asked an effort two furlongs from home. He was ridden to lead approaching the furlong pole and stayed on really strongly to win by two-and-a-quarter-lengths.
Coolagh Forest won over course and distance last month and he was impressive once again. He tracked the leaders under Paul Hanagan and took up the lead approaching the final furlong. He stayed on well under pressure and found more again to win by three-lengths for owner Alan Harte.
