AQTAL WINNING 4A 5.00
FUN AT HEREFORD !
A fine days racing at HEREFORD, despite blistering hot conditions.
Doubles were recorded by Trainer, Mrs Duffield and her stable jockey,
Phil Collington, who won the opening race with MUTARASED and
the fifth at 4.00 with DJEDOR DE BOZOULS (FR).
MUTARASED confirmed the promise shown on
his debut run, winning well from the improving PENNY
BLACK who is sure to hit winning form shortly for Mrs
DJEDOR DE BOZOULS (FR) had a simple task
in the ABBEY DORE HANDICAP STAKES, beating
his three rivals, as expected, with ease. It will be interesting
to see where this top class individual goes next and whether
he will be tried over a longer trip.
David Paton continued the good form of his
stable and The BXPS Racing Partnership by
winning the JEBEL ALI QUALIFIER at 3.30
with his consistent runner NOTID, who had
only won one race previously in 24 starts, but showed himself
to be tough and game with a close fought victory over FRENCH
LIEUTENANT, and the closing race of the day, the CLARENDON
STUD BANDED STAKES with AQTAL,
both ridden by Mr Fred Offord.
Trainer, Mrs D Thomas and jockey, Mr
R Cummings were another team to leave with a double
after ROCHES DU CAYROU and AL MAMOON
(UAE) won the third and sixth races respectively,
The BRIGHTWELLS SELLING WINNER AT ASCOT SALES BANDED
STAKES and the TOWN & COUNTRY FARMS
NOVICE RIDERS HANDICAP STAKES (QUALIFIER). Both
were ably assisted in the saddle by Mr R Cummings who would
seem to have a bright future and, if he gets the rides,
will be a strong contender to take the Town & Country
Novice Riders Series 2005.
The second race of the day at 2.30, The WITHINGTON HANDICAP STAKES went
to Mr Phil Rondel, who owned, trained and rode his talented
mare LA PERRUCHE (FR) to a popular victory. Dificult to get
to the start, LA PERRUCHE showed no such reluctance in the race
and won well for her enthusiastic and dedicated rider, who received a well earned
round of applause when riding into the winners enclosure.
David Turner still leads the jockeys table
with 7 wins, but is now closely followed by Phil
Collington who, with 6 winners, is now only one
winner behind and Simon Walker who holds
third position on 5 winners. After his double, Fred
Offord is on 4 winners for the season.
