Ventura Bounty made the long trip to Newcastle worthwhile by winning handsomely for Middleham Park Racing under Silvestre de Sousa. He travelled smoothly throughout and took up the running two furlongs from home, under hands and heals riding he quickly powered clear and won by five lengths eased down.
We have always thought a lot of this handsome colt by Dabirsim, he showed plenty of promise on his debut as a two year old when second at Nottingham last summer. He was then put away for the winter - Middleham Park’s patience has paid off as he has come back in stronger and more mature.
This striking performance will hopefully lead onto bigger and better things and we look forward to watching him progress throughout the season.
