FELIX LEITER wins at the second time of...
Tickling Katie
FELIX LEITER wins at the second time of asking at Yarmouth under Ben Curtis with the first & second in the race drawing a long way clear of the remainder.

FRONTLINE PHANTOM unlucky again when getting squeezed out in the final furlong but managed to finish a clear second under yard apprentice Peter Sword.

CAFE CORTADO was only in her new owners colours of the Snakes & Ladders partnership for one run when finishing second at Thirsk to then be claimed to head to Sweden.

TICKING KATIE followed up her impressive win at York with a second in a very competitive race at Newmarket ridden by Robbie Fitzpatrick.

GLENALMOND the full brother to Group 1 winning Wooten Bassett made a winning debut at Ayr. He is a lovely horse with a great attitude and won decisively after travelling well under Danny Tudhope. He holds big race entries and should come on alot from the run.

BARON RUN back at his favorite track Hamilton made it a third win there under a front running ride from Joey Haynes. The ground had dried out which was against him but he stuck to it and battled to get home in front.

CAPRIOR BERE was unlucky to bump into one again finishing second for the second time at Pontefract he is a strong built two year old with plenty of potential and should be winning soon.

TOOCOOLFORSCHOOL made a promising debut to finish third at Nottingham, he is a big scopey horse and the ground looked a little on the fast side for him.

ELIZABETH FLYNN was very unlucky not to get her second win at Beverley when she just drifted across the track and went down by a neck after having kicked clear at the furlong pole, an easier track may suit her better.

MYSTIC & ARTIST finished second at Windsor under Martin Harley, she will benefit from a step up in trip and slightly slower ground.

RISING BREEZE equipped with a hood for the first time settled out the back and came through the pack under a beautifully timed ride by Joey Haynes to win by 3 Lengths. He is a horse who has plenty of ability but just needs to keep relaxed in preliminaries and the early parts of the race in order to show his full potential.

EXPLOSIVE LADY then made it a quick double by bolting up in the following race under a hands and heels ride from Ben Curtis to win comfortably by 4 Lengths. She is a lovely big filly who showed a great attitude to win first time out.

MILLAR ROSE made it win number 15 for the Ontoawinner syndicate this year when she took the two year old claiming stakes at Catterick ridden by Ben Curtis.

TRUANCY seemed to relish front running tactics as he made it his second win when ridden from the front under Joey Haynes at Epsom, he won nicely by a couple of lengths looking like he still had more in hand.

TICKING KATIE got her head in front just in time right on the line to make it a first win at York for her local owners at Ontoawinner Syndicate. They were defiantly a happy bunch and plenty of them were there to welcome her back in to the winners enclosure.

YOURE FIRED showed his amazing turn of foot at Newmarket on Saturday only to get narrowly denied by a Godoplphin horse who was first time gelded and first time visored. Youre Fired looked to be rolling around slightly unbalanced at the start of the race but when he met the rising ground took of from the back to finish fast, he is a lovely colt who we think can keep progressing.

NATURAL ORDER having his first run in Group company at Newmarket finished a respectable fourth place.

FELIX LEITER was making his debut at Hamilton and after being a bit green in the preliminaries and in the early stages of the race ran on strongly only to be denied by a neck, he should defiantly come on for the race.

Double at Nottingham!
Wed, July 2, 2014
Double at Nottingham courtesy of BETTY BERE & FRONTLINE PHANTOM!

BETTY BERE is a lovely big filly by Japanese sire Peer Gynt it was only her second outing and after getting very restless in the stalls and making her own running which wasn't ideal she still stuck to her task to win under a strong ride from Martin Harley. FRONTLINE PHANTOM who had two seasons off due to injury didn't need to battle very hard to win the one mile 2furlong handicap under Joey Haynes, he then ran the next day at Hamilton under another of our apprentices Pete Sword to finish second so he's defiantly making up for lost time.

ARTHUR MARTIN LEAKE named after a war veteran finished third after blowing the start and running on strongly late on in the race, he then went to Windsor the following week and finished second to what looked like a very useful horse of Clive Cox's.

BOLD PREDICTION a model of consistency finished in the placings again in the feature handicap at Ripon under Joey Haynes.

DANCING JUICE made a promising debut with us winning under Rob J Fitzpatrick at Redcar over five furlongs. He unfortunately proceeded to get rid of his jockey after the line and gallop loose for three laps of the track however neither horse nor jockey were none the worse.

RIVELLINO ran a cracker to finish third in the Wokingham at Royal Ascot on Saturday under William Buick he was drawn in the middle of the track which wasn't ideal as most of the pace was on the stands side and he is a horse who loves to come of a strong pace but we were thrilled with his run and were sure a big win isn't to far away for him.
