Good, Gd to Firm
Emirates Arabian Premier Handicap Stakes (0-95) 6 Furlongs:
1. Wayward Faery Charlotte
2. Merlin De Carrere Mr. S Harrison
3. CS Patriarch Mr. D I Turner
3, 1 8 ran Time: 01:19:04
by Wayward Racing. Trained by Mr. R K Baily. Bred by Mrs. S Boorman.
The six furlong
handicap stakes was run at a fast pace as the leading pair of
Olivphaya and Mutamarres took them along at a decent gallop, with
Merlin De Carrere and CS Patriarch racing prominently in behind.
At the two furlong mark recent Lingfield winner CS Patriarch took
up the running and went to the front, only to be overcome in the
final furlong by Merlin De Carrere. However, the eventual winner
Wayward Faery (Kesberoy X Faery Wand) was stalking the pair ominously
and quickened up in devastating style in the final furlong to
pull readily clear of the leading pair to score by a comfortable
three lengths. The second recent Huntingdon winner Merlin De Carrere
(Dormane X Qu’aty De Carrere) ran with promise and showed
plenty of speed but had no answer to the winner. CS Patriarch
(Makzan X Pokrovka) was a further length back in third and was
prominent throughout, he looks progressive and was clear of the
useful Olivphaya (Vert Olive X Phaya).
