The yard's form is as hot as the recent weather, as a double on Friday gave us eight winners in three days, and also took us to 50 winners for the year. First up was CROACHILL at Doncaster, who came out on top in a tricky-looking three-runner fillies' novice at Doncaster.
Cameron Noble was aboard the daughter of Churchill, who had shaped with considerable promise on debut when second at Chelmsford. Noble was content to sit at the rear of the field, but then swept through in the home straight for a comfortable two and three quarter length victory. Congratulations to owner Mohamed Saeed Buhlaibeh, and we hope Croachill has plenty more improvement to come.
Attention then turned to Newmarket in the evening, where exciting newcomer PURE DIGNITY made her racecourse debut over a mile. A half-sister to 2020 Arc hero Sottsass, Pure Dignity has a big pedigree and pricetag, and she looked very exciting when staying on strongly to defeat odds-on shot Light Of Peace, who had already been placed twice.
Pure Dignity did show some signs of greeness, but powered home when encountering the rising ground and was on top by a length at the line under David Egan.
Congratulations to Pure Dignity's owners, Sheikh Nasser Al Khalifa and KHK Racing, and hopefully there is a lot more to come from the filly, who looks a very exciting sort for the rest of this season and beyond.
