Continuing our rich vein of form we started the week off as we mean to go on with another double!
ALJALELA appreciated the step up in trip and better ground to break her maiden on her second start in handicap company at Lingfield for owners Al Shaqab Racing. Given a cool ride by Thore Hammer Hansen she made good headway two furlongs out and pulled clear inside the final furlong to win by a comfortable 1 1/2 lengths. This Golden Horn three year old has taken a bit of time to come into herself so it was great to see everyones patience rewarded with a good victory.
GRINLING brought up the double winning for the second time this year at Windsor Racecourse for Gillian, Lady Howard De Walden. Given a canny ride by Pat Dobbs he made headway early on to press the leader and with a furlong to go was pushed out to win readily by a length and three quarters.
