We had another excellent Saturday with a five-timer. Powerallied got things started at Chester for Dr Marwan Koukash. He had to take the long way round under Connor Murtagh travelling wide. He stayed on well when challenged inside the final furlong and held on to win by a neck.

Lucky Lucky Man handed apprentice Oakley Brown and The Musley Bank Partnership another winner, and then Jack Garritty guided Billy Bond to success. He was held up towards the rear and started to challenge over the final two furlongs. He took up the lead and held on gamely to win by a head.

We also had a double to York. Exhort has been ultra consistent and it was great to see her get her head in front for her fourth career win. She was held up towards the rear by jockey Tony Hamilton. She didn’t have much room approaching the final furlong and was switched left to get some room. She showed a great attitude when headed to get up on the line and win by three-quarters-of-a-length for Cheveley Park Stud.

Society Queen then gave Norman and Helen Steel another winner. She was held up by Tony and started to challenge inside the final two furlongs. She pulled clear to win by one-and-a-quarter-lengths.
