14th May 2018 1st 5/4 – Royalraise – Oliver Sherwood Towcester

Got up in the dying strides under a great ride from Gina! Original quote: “Royalraise – Paul’s Port Melon is the one we’ve all got to beat but Royal will head here with a fair chance too. We get 4lbs off the favourite and the horse is well after a fair third at Southwell last time. Goes well on this good ground and after just getting outpaced a bit in the closing stages last time the step up to 3m here will help. For a 9 year-old is actually fairly lightly-raced with just 15 career runs. Has the stamina for this trip and Gina Andrews, who rode last time too, continues in the saddle.”
