MAHLERDRAMATIC, off the track over a year, made an impressive winning seasonal reappearance taking the 2m½f Novices’ Hurdle at Doncaster on Saturday in good style in the hands of Nathan Moscrop.

SHEARLING stays on well to win racecourse debut

SHEARLING made a winning racecourse debut staying on well to take the Fillies’ Junior Bumper at Warwick yesterday.

Partnered by Kaine Wood, she was well positioned in between horses just in behind the leading pair as they set off at a crawl. As the pace gradually increased, she met trouble in running a couple of times and became unbalanced before getting going to make good headway a furlong out. She stayed on well, mostly under hands and heels, to get up by a head in the final strides...

EYES OF A TIGER wins at Wetherby

EYES OF A TIGER made all to take the two-mile Handicap Hurdle (a qualifier for the Two Mile Hurdle Series) at Wetherby yesterday.

Nathan Moscrop (pictured), who rides this lad out at home, partnered Phil Martin’s five-year-old who can be quite keen on occasion. But fitted with the hood, and allowed an easy lead, he bowled a long in front, jumped well and kept on to the line to post a two-and-a-half length victory; the rest of the field never getting in a blow. It was a good ride by Nathan who was thrilled to be riding a winner for the team, in the familiar colours of owner Phil Martin, on a horse he rides at home regularly, on Channel 4 Racing!

PISTOL PARK stays on well to score at Newcastle

PISTOL PARK is now two wins from three starts since joining the stable this summer following success in the 2m½f Novices' Handicap Chase at Newcastle yesterday.

Brian Hughes partnered the five-year-old... Back down in trip, he jumped the first in front before settling in behind Lake View Lad who went on to make the running, setting a decent enough gallop. Pistol Park travelled well to take the lead again four from home. He battled gamely from there and flew the last when a good jump was needed, staying on well up the run-in to score by one-and-a-half lengths...

Winning chasing debut for FOREST BIHAN

FOREST BIHAN got off the mark over fences at the first attempt taking the two-mile Novices’ Chase at Towcester in good style, yesterday afternoon.

DEFINITLY RED stayed on well to win on seasonal reappearance

DEFINITLY RED got his 2016/17 campaign off to the best possible start with a decisive victory in the 2m4f Handicap Hurdle at Carlisle yesterday.
