SUNRISE WINNING 3.00
WINNING PENN WOOD (Qualifier) 3.30
Report Jim & Chris Bielby
BRIEF NEWS from STRATFORD:
LA PERRUCHE, WINNER OF THE PENN WOOD CHALLENGE
(SERIES QUALIFIER) HANDICAP STAKES, was the first winner as
a jockey for Owner, Trainer Mr P D Rondel. La Perruche has always
promised to be above average and at Stratford he finally proved
his undoubted ability by storming home in decisive fashion.
Further improvement looks likely.
WA SAVANNAH SUNRISE, put up a game performance
under Mr R G Woolard to win the JEBEL ALI RACING CLUB (SERIES
QUALIFIER) at 3.00, Owned and Trained by Ms C Taylor.
MIDNITE DREAM, returned to his best for the
Legg family, winning the MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING HANDICAP STAKES
under a great ride from Mr David Turner, who knows how to get
the best out of this consistent performer who needs plenty of
encouragement to produce his best form on the day. A great frinale
to a good days racing which saw VARONA win
the Opening race at 2.00, Owned by H H Sheik Mohammed Bin R
AL Maktoum, Trained by Mr W SMith and ridden by Mr SImon Walker.
The 2.30 was won by IBN AJWAAD (The second
leg of a double for Simon Walker - Trained by Mrs N Van Dijk
and Owned by Mrs M Young) in a driving finish from SA
BIBI (ridden by Mr Gordon Farr), who looked the likely
winner one furlong out and a triple dead heat for 4th place
between KATELAND, MAIYZAH and JANA.
MACK THE KNIFE, owned by Mr G Cook and trained by Mrs
A M Cook, is a promising individual and came good, after some
disappointing runs - albeit in top class company - in the 4.00,
ridden by Mr Phil Collington who is putting in a sterling challenge
for the Jockeys Championship this season, currently in second
place with 15 winners, behind the current Champion Mr Simon
Walker who now heads the table with 19 winners.
Pierre Deymonaz won a trifle cleverly on the useful SHAHNGALI,
trained by Tony Brunton for Owner, Ms T J Wright, in the 4.30
The Claydon Horse Exercisers Handicap Stakes, carrying top weight
to victory, beating the ultra consistent WAYWARD FAERY,
MERLIN DE CARRERE, KASPA and ALANYA in
a 5 horse race.
