Middleham Park Racing’s patience in Tatlisu paid off when he won a valuable handicap at Newcastle. The seven-year-old hasn’t won since his victory in the Ayr Silver Cup but after a couple of breaks from the track he’s gradually been getting back to his best. He was held up towards the rear of the field and always looked to be travelling strongly. He was hampered and bumped as he started to make an impression inside the final furlong and showed a great attitude to battle to the front and stay on to win by a length-and-three-quarters.
