THE DAYS RACING:
DOUBLES FOR ALISON BATCHELOR, TONY BRUNTON, PIERRE DEYMONAZ
and SIMON WALKER
FAER SAOR completed a first time double for
local trainer Alison Batchelor who also won the first race,
the Clarendon Stud Maiden Stakes with JELVITA,
ridden by Miss E-J Jones. JELVITA, previously
trained in France by G F Mikhalidesand, had run third at Wolverhampton
on her UK Debut on the 22nd May but showed improvement at Exeter
to win in good style. Another stable to have a double on the
day was Tony Brunton, who won with CS AL WAHED
in the opening race at 2.00 and CS CAMELLIA
in the 4.00 race. Both horses were ridden by the stylish Mr
Peirre Deymonaz who took his seasons total to 6 winners and
keeps him in third position in the Jockeys Championship behind
the present Champion, Mr Simon Walker, who also rode a double,
riding FAER SAOR for Alison Batchelor and PAVOT
AL KYLE - owned and trained by Mrs D Thomas, from Wales.
Simon (Walker) is now leading the Jockeys Championship with
11 winners, but is being strongly pursued by Mr Phil Collington
who has had a treble on both of the last two Saturdays, but
drew a blank at Exeter, and remains on 9 winners. AL
AASI, owned by Mrs J M Pierson, trained by Mrs A L
Colledge and ridden by Mr Stephen Harrison, won the 4.30, the
Mark Marriott Tribute Handicap Stakes.
DAKOTA WILLOW took the Series Qualifier for
the Jebel Ali Racing Club Handicap Stakes, ridden by Mr Sam
Holdsworth who was recording his third winner of the current
season and trained by Mr K D Malpass from Kidderminster. This
was a first win for the grey mare from eight outings but, now
she has got her head in front, further improvement can be expected.
