Varian Stable’s winning form continued this afternoon, this time on the All-Weather at Lingfield. ENSEMBLE got to the front early and made all, landing the Download The At The Races App Fillies' Novice Stakes in style.
The Clipper Logistics filly, unlucky on her last appearance on the track where she was a close second in her seasonal debut on the turf at Newmarket on Good to Firm. This afternoon it all came together in a pleasing fashion, partnered with Kieran Shoemark they broke well from stall one, taking up an early lead to avoid traffic that held her up at Newmarket. BARSHAA and the market favourite ANGEL AMADEA kept on the filly’s heels for the majority of the course and distance. Turning into the home straight Shoemark made a move for home, Ensemble moved powerfully away maintaining an easy two to three length lead in the closing stages. Barshaa tried to keep on the pace but was no match for Ensemble who cruised to the line with a 2 ¾ length lead ahead of Barshaa and 5 ½ lengths clear of the favourite Angel Amadea from the William Haggas yard in third.
Congratulations to Clipper Logistics and connections. An impressive performance from the daughter of Nayef, her pedigree suggests this trip will suit her well and we hope she can continue to progress and maintain this upward curve throughout the season.
