EXCEPTIONAL DEBUT AT CARLISLE

Exceptional made a really pleasing debut at Carlisle under Tony Hamilton. She sat towards the rear of the field and had quite a lot of work to do approaching the final furlong. She picked up really strongly and when she hit the front she pulled clear to win by three-quarters-of-a-length. She’s a full sister to Ayr Gold Cup winner Don’t Touch and looks a nice prospect for owners Cheveley Park Stud.
