ENTRANCING 100TH WINNER

Entrancing made an very impressive debut to give us our 100th winner of the year. She wasn’t the quickest away and sat towards the rear of the field under Barry McHugh. They made headway over a furlong out and she stayed on really strongly to win by a length-and-a-half. The daughter of Mayson was the sires 50th individual winner this year.

POP DANCER WALTZES TO SUCCESS

Pop Dancer finished second on his debut at Pontefract a couple of weeks ago and went one better at the same track. He made all under Tony Hamilton and he and the second pulled well clear of the rest of the field. He looks a nice prospect for the Richard Fahey Ebor Racing Club.

FURZIG GIVES MEGAN ANOTHER SILK SERIES WIN

Megan Nicholls has won the Ladies Silk Series the last two years and she’s well on her way to a third title after another winner – this time Furzig at Newcastle. He was held up towards the rear and they made headway over the final two furlongs. They chased down the leader and battled strongly over the final furlong to get up and win by a length-and-a-quarter for owners Mr and Mrs Ashton.

TWO-YEAR-OLDS SPARKLE AT THIRSK

We had two really nice two-year-old winners at Thirsk. Diamond Sparkles improved for his run at Carlisle to win nicely under apprentice Sean Davis. He was held up in midfield and started to make headway over the final two furlongs. He battled to get the lead and stayed on strongly to win by three-quarters-of-a-length for owner Mrs Richard Henry.

Ventura Lightning made a really pleasing debut for Middleham Park Racing. He tracked the leaders under Tony Hamilton and was pushed for an effort over the final furlong. Once he had daylight he stayed on strongly to get up an win by a neck.

VALDERMORO VERY IMPRESSIVE AT DONCASTER

Valdermoro came on leaps and bounds for his debut run at Haydock last month and he was very impressive when winning at Doncaster. He tracked the leaders under Tony Hamilton and went second two furlongs from home. He was travelling really strongly and always looked the winner. He won comfortably by three-and-a-quarter lengths for owner Martin Macleod and looks a very nice prospect.

BEVERLEY WIN FOR LUIS

Luis Vaz De Torres picked up his eighth win of his career with victory at Beverley. A strong pace was set and apprentice Sean Davis dropped him in towards the rear of the field. He started to make progress over the final two furlongs but had to be patient for a gap to open up. When it did he battled well on the rail and got up to win by a neck. There were plenty there from Lets Go Racing 1 to welcome him back.

UNBEATEN OTI MA BOATI THREE WINS IN-A-ROW

Oti Ma Boati reamins unbeaten and stretches her unbeaten run to three. The Iffraaj filly was held up towards the rear and was asked for an effort by Tony Hamilton two furlongs from home. She picked up really well and chased down the leaders. There was a blanket finish but she got up on the line to win by a head.

Cloudea picked up her first win on just her second start. Tony was again in the saddle this time at Ripon. They made all and she was eased down to win by four-and-a-half-lengths for the Richard Fahey Ebor Racing Club.

Indomeneo has been a bit frustrating this season and non more so than Friday when he finished fourth at Haydock. He didn’t have a tough race so we ran again at the same track the next day. He tracked the leaders under Connor Murtagh and was ridden to take the lead approaching the final furlong. He stayed on strongly and fended off the challenger to win by a neck.

TWO WINS IN A WEEK FOR SALAM ZAYED

Salam Zayed made it two wins in a week. He followed up his win at Chester with a win at Nottingham. He chased the leader under Paul Hanagan and lead two furlongs from home. He was driven out and stayed on well under pressure to win by a head for owner Dr Marwan Koukash.

RAMESSES VICTORIOUS AT AYR

Ramesses was given a great ride by apprentice Sean Davis to win at Ayr. They jumped out well and took an early lead but Astrologer wanted to make the running and set a strong pace. He went clear halfway and Sean set about cutting down his lead. He travelled strongly to get to the front and took the lead inside the final furlong. He stayed on to win by three-quarters-of-a-length for owner Sir Robert Ogden.

CHESTER FOUR-TIMER

It had been a frustrating day with four placed horses at York but things took a positive turn at Chester with four winners. The first was Salam Zayed and it was a little bit of a surprise. He was sent off at 28 to 1 in the Lady Amateurs Race under Carol Bartley. He was held up in mid-division and started to make progress over the final three furlongs. Had the lead at the final maker and stayed on well to win by a length.

National League picked up the first win of his career on just his third start. He was towards the rear under Paddy Mathers and started to chase down the leaders approaching the final furlong. He ran on well towards the finish to win by three-quarters-of-a-length.

Paul Hanagan then had the ride of the night to win on Gabrial The Tiger. He flew out the stalls and came across from a bad to draw to bag the lead. He made all and stayed on well under pressure to win by a length-and-a-quarter.

Paul then gave Powerallied a great ride. He loves Chester and was always travelling really strongly. He didn’t get the clearest of runs over the final furlong but when he got some daylight he powered to the finish to get up and win on the line by a short head to hand Dr Marwan Koukash a treble on the night.
