The four-year-old son of Galileo has thrived in recent weeks and looks well up to Group class based on his latest triumph.

It was also great to see Yarroom return to winning ways when taking a competitive ten-furlong handicap at Chester yesterday afternoon.

Sheikh Ahmed’s colt was trying the trip for the first time and ran out a ready winner under Dane O’Neill.

There was also plenty of encouragement from our two juvenile runners this week. El Najmm, a colt by Sea The Stars, caught the eye when a running on third at Chepstow whilst the Cheveley Park Stud-owned High Accolade shaped with promise when second at Salisbury yesterday.

From just seven runners this week, the yard has sent out two winners and three placed runners.

Roger said: “After a tough spell in August it was great to see the horses run to form this week.

“In general the horses seemed to have returned to good health and this week’s results back that up.

“It will be another week or two before we are sending out large numbers of runners again but I am optimistic that we are in good shape for a solid autumn campaign.”
