HAVANA GREY takes the National stakes (Listed) at Sandown leading from pillar to post under a positive ride from PJ McDonald. Havana Grey was sire Havana Gold's first stake winner and he did it in impressive style. He is a lovely straight forward colt who we have always liked and has stepped up and improved from each of his runs. He had a good draw at Sandown so we decided to send him forward and make his own running but we think he prefers a horse to aim at so we were delighted to see him stick on well up the Sandown hill. He looks set to head to Ascot now but no firm decision has been made to what race.
RAYDIANCE finished second on his first racecourse outing, the son of Mayson was another of ours to enjoy the rain softened ground and they drew clear of the rest of the field.
MUSIKEL ran a pleasing race on turf to finish third after winning his first start for us on the all weather at Newcastle.
