Two Doubles On The Weekend

Fri 21 July 2017

A solid weekend was had by the two year old division last week. On Friday a nice across the card double was had by two promising juveniles. The first of those was LETHAL LUNCH at Ascot under Tom Marquand. He was having his third run and looked to have improved on every start. The son of Lethal Force was having his first run away from Windsor and did it in style. The race looked a competitive affair on paper and that’s the way it looked. ‘I have always liked this horse and I am glad he could win a nice race like this. He has taken a while to learn his trade but once he clicked today he was gone. He has a few options now but I will speak with the owners first.’

The second winner on the day came at Newmarket. Another son of a first season sire won very impressively in the nursery. TANGLED was stepping into handicap company for the first time and did so in style. He was very strong to the line and looks like he has plenty of improvement to come. ‘He again has always been a horse we have liked. He didn’t have a lot of luck early on but seems to have got to grips with things now. He has the option of heading to Goodwood next so I will see how he comes out of the race.’

Saturday saw another winner at Newmarket in the shape of MEDAHIM who win impressively in the mile handicap under Sean Levey. He was settled towards the rear and stayed on really well late on. ‘He was ridden too positively at Ascot and didn’t get home. He needs to be dropped out and come there with a strong turn of foot. He has impressed me today and I can see him picking up a few more handicaps before stepping up into Listed company.’
The second winner on Saturday was a first time out two year old of Middleham Park Racing. TIGRE DU TERRE won very well and showed he is a possible star of the future. ‘A lot of my horses need the run, so if they win first up they are very decent. He has worked well at home but he was very impressive here today. He will no doubt come on for the run and looks a very exciting prospect indeed.’

FANFAIR managed to get herself in the winner’s enclosure for the second time this year at Lingfield on Wednesday. She has enjoyed the step up in trip and has doubled her tally. ‘She isn’t overly big but she is very tough and she proved it once again today.’
