After a good run in finishing second at Wolverhampton on the sixth of January, Batraan turns his fortune around and at the sixth attempt claims a deserved win in the Betway Novice Stakes at Southwell today.

Batraan made virtually all the running in the three runner race. The two contenders from the Richard Fahey yard; Galeophobia, the chief market rival and Andalaska Bear attempted to keep the pressure on. But Batraan showed strength in his stride and continued to control the race heading into the home straight. Jack Mitchell asked for more at the 1f marker and Batraan kept up the good work to maintain the lead and break his Maiden with a comfortable win.


Congratulations to winning connections, HH Sheikh Ahmed Al Maktoum and all involved.
