Borderforce won well at Ripon on Monday under a patient ride form yard apprentice Clifford Lee. On only his third start for the yard and owner Colin Bryce he sat midfield on the inner until asked to go on 2 furlongs out to just beat the Karen McLintock trained Gurkha Friend. Well done to Nikki who looks after him and Harriet who rides him every day at home.
Commanding Officer ran a great race at the York Ebor meeting when winning by half a length in the British Stallion Studs EBF Convivial maiden stakes over 7 Furlongs brilliantly ridden by Daniel Tudhope for the Clipper Logistics Owners. He was close up when ridden to lead over 1 furlong out and kept on well to finish infront of the Andrew Balding trained Indomitable. This ended a great Ebor meeting for us with Havana Grey, Kelly's Dino and Swissterious all running respectably good races throughout the week. Well done to Linsey who looks after him and the whole team at Spigot Lodge.
