GERRY THE GLOVER lands the finale on Plate day

Although we didn’t leave Newcastle with the one race Brian would dearly love to win we enjoyed a fantastic three days up at Gosforth Park with Gerry The Glover’s victory in the finale on Saturday taking us to six winners for the Northumberland Plate meeting.

And most importantly, as Brian pointed out in his interview on At The Races, all the horses have come back in one piece.

GERRY THE GLOVER (pictured left) from last to first to take the 3yo, 1m Handicap with ease under a good ride by Silvestere De Sousa. The pace was strong, and drawn seven of seven, Gerry The Glover was immediately reined back by Silvestre and dropped in at the rear of the field. Pulled out with over two to run, Julie Martin’s three-year-old stayed on strongly inside the final furlong pulling away to score by two lengths with ears pricked...

Seamour fared best of our Northumberland Plate quartet beaten just two-and-a-quarter lengths into sixth. Silvestre De Sousa partnered our lightly-raced four-year-old and was of the strong opinion the draw (stall 22) beat us. He will be aimed at the Ebor now...

Day two of the Plate meeting at Newcastle and two more winners courtesy of NORTHGATE LAD & OFF THE SCALE

We have enjoyed a fantastic start to the three-day Northumberland Plate Festival at Newcastle this week with a treble on opening day and a double on day two courtesy of Northgate Lad and Off The Scale.

NORTHGATE LAD justified favourtism in the Betfred Gosforth Park Cup taking the Class 2 event in good style under Silvestre De Sousa while OFF THE SCALE got up late to land the Betfred "Watch Fred's Pushes On Betfred Tv" Handicap also in the hands of Silvestre De Sousa...

Great start to the three-day plate meeting with a treble courtesy of PRINCE HELLVELYN, KNIGHTLY ESCAPADE & MYBOYDANIEL

PRINCE HELLVELYN followed up a very promising third on debut at York earlier this month with victory in the six-furlong Median Auction Maiden Stakes at Newcastle. Tom Eaves partnered the gelded son of Hellvelyn...

KNIGHTLY ESCAPADE absolutely bolted up in the 2m Handicap under a super-confident ride by Silvestre De Sousa while MYBOYDANIEL made his handicap debut a winning one when landing the 3yo, seven furlong Handicap, also in the hands of Silvestre De Sousa, thus completing a treble on the day for us...

Fleet Dawn retired

Fleet Dawn has been retired due to injury following his chasing debut at Uttoxeter earlier this month.

Owned by Prism Bloodstock, the nine-year-old was last seen winning at Worcester in May when a step up in trip, drop in class and good to soft ground brought out the best in him to land the 2m4f Handicap Hurdle under a good ride from Felix De Giles. The son of Polish Precedent joined Brian in July 2012 and has been a difficult horse to keep sound with varying leg issues. We were delighted to see him in the winner’s enclosure this year and we’re relieved to see him retired!

Top Of The Glas third in Cumberland Plate

Top Of The Glas ran a blinder to finish third in the Totepool Cumberland Plate at Carlisle on Wednesday. Partnered by Tom Eaves, the Market Avenue Racing Club Ltd-owned four-year-old hugged the rail in behind the leaders for much of the race but didn’t get the clearest of runs through and was briefly short of room until switched right with a furlong to run...

SERENITY NOW wins well at Hexham

SERENITY NOW landed the Toteexacta Pick The 1st And 2nd Handicap Hurdle at Hexham in good style under Conditional jockey, Craig Gallagher, on Sunday. Winner of an Apprentice Handicap at Southwell over 1m4f earlier this year, the seven-year-old was stepping up to 2m4f for his fifth career start over hurdles and, settled in rear, travelled and jumped well before being tapped for toe as they quickened down the far side with two to jump...

BAR DE LIGNE lands the feature race under top-weight at Market Rasen

BAR DE LIGNE stayed on well to take the feature, 2m5½f Handicap Chase, at Market Rasen on Friday. Partnered by Richard Johnson the nine-year-old travelled well in third before moving into second with a circuit to run. Pushed along three out, Bar De Ligne stayed on well after the last to score by a neck from Harry’s Whim...

Balty Boys fourth in the Royal Hunt Cup

Balty Boys ran an absolute blinder to finish fourth in the Royal Hunt Cup on day two of Royal Ascot. Partnered by Silvestre De Sousa, and drawn in stall 21, our consistent six-year-old Cape Cross gelding was beaten little over two lengths by the John Gosden-trained G M Hopkins, with the first three home all racing on the far side. Balty Boys was five lengths clear of those to race in his group on the stands side...

Horses continue in great form with an across-the-card double courtesy of BLUE BULLET and EBAZAN

Blue Bullet put in a game performance to get up on the line in the Molson Coors Handicap at Carlisle. Ben Curtis partnered the five-year-old, Red Clubs gelding who was making his seasonal debut...

Ebazan put in a good performance to land the 2m4½f Conditional Jockeys' Handicap Hurdle at Southwell under Gold Cup winning jockey, Nico de Boinville. Only his second start for us, the Lemon Drop Kid gelding raced close up in third for much of the race before being outpaced turning for home...
