For those who are intrested in horse racing im going to keep you informed about what is going on in the world of horse racing, im going to start producing a round-up of the results every day from Monday to Friday.So with that in mind i will start with tuesdays meetings which were Ffos Las,catterick,and in ireland there was meeting from cork
William Twiston-Davies stole the show on Tuesday as he landed a 155/1 double on a seven race card at Ffos Las. He teamed up with trainer John Spearing for the first leg in the Brand New 32Red Sport.com Handicap as he partnered Gracie’s Games to an impressive three and a quarter length success. The double was completed just over an hour later as he rode Golden Jubilee to victory in the Barry Walters Catering Handicap for father Nigel.
Another rising star of the weighing room Oisin Murphy continues to go from strength to strength and he showed all of his ability with 16/1 double of his own. Having ridden Si Senor to a resounding success in the Follow @BetVictorRacing On Twitter Handicap at Kempton, he soon followed up in the Download The BetVictor Instabet App Median Auction Maiden Stakes aboard Elbereth for his boss Andrew Balding.
Elswhere, trainer Mark Johnston continued his fine form with victory in Catterick’s feature contest, the Betfred Exclusive Competitions On Facebook Handicap. The Joe Fanning-ridden Special Fighter won impressively on his latest start at Beverley and despite stepping up in trip he was similarly dominant here. He ran on strongly close home to win with three and a half lengths to spare.
Ripon’s feature contest was the David Chapman Memorial Handicap run over five furlongs and it went the way of the Paul Midgley-trained Silvanus. The nine-year-old led entering the final furlong and kept finding for Paul Mulrennan as he held off his pursuers by a head at the line.
There was also plenty of action across the Irish Sea with most eyes on the Aidan O’Brien-trained colt General Marshall in the first race at Cork. This colt was purchased for 1.15 million Guineas at the Breeze Up Sales in April but could only finish third under Joseph O’Brien. It is quite possible that he will prefer quicker ground than he encountered yesterday and could be worth watching out for next time.
That race was the first part of a good card at Cork which included a Listed and Group 3 contest. The Listed race over a mile went the way of Ger Lyons’ Brendan Bracken with the five-year-old making all under Colin Keane to land the spoils. The potent combination of Pat Smullen and Dermot Weld also got themselves on the score sheet as Edelmira landed the Group 3 Irish Stallion Farms European Breeders Fund Give Thanks Stakes. This was the filly’s second win in three starts and she also looks like one for the notebook.
