Showbizzy has been very disappointing this season, she hasn’t looked like she wanted to race but having said that the Class 5 Handicap at Doncaster was the kind of race she should be winning and so we were delighted to see her do it so well. We put a visor on her for the first time and it made a difference. She was always prominent under jockey George Chaloner and when he asked her to pick up she immediately responded. She had the lead heading into the final furlong and stayed on strongly to win by two-and-a-quarter-lengths. Well done to the Racegoers Club Owners Group who have had to be patient.
We then doubled up with Normandie Lady at Hamilton. The three-year-old was held up in mid division by jockey David Nolan. They made headway over a furlong out and took up the lead inside the final furlong. They kept on to win by a length-and-a-half, securing her second win in five starts for owner Mr Phipps.
