AIMERIC got up in the shadow of the post to deny the favourite and land the spoils in the Goose Island Midway Maiden Stakes at Chester this afternoon.

The well bred son of Frankel showed a marked step up in form from his last appearance on the track at Newmarket in May. Today despite the steady pace going against him, the 3YO switched right under the careful guidance of Ray Dawson and showed a determined progression down the home straight, eventually wearing down the favourite El Habeeb in the final strides. 

Congratulations to Sheikh Mohammed Obaid Al Maktoum and connections.
