Rashford’s Double made it three wins on the bounce when winning at Nottingham. He was held up towards the rear of the field by jockey Adam McNamara. They made headway over the final three furlongs and challenged for the lead approaching the final furlong. He stayed on strongly and got up to win by a head. There were plenty of members of Middleham Park Racing there to welcome him back into the winners enclosure.
Ballesteros picked up his second win in a row. Again Adam was in the saddle and he timed his challenge perfectly. They tracked the leaders and made their move over the final furlong. Ballesteros has a tendency to idle when he hits the front so Adam got him there just when he needed and they stayed on to win by a neck.
