Arch Walker – Thirsk – 19th June

Arch Walker ran in the 5 furlong 0-65 race at Thirsk yesterday. Paul Mulrennan took the ride aboard the John Weymes trained 5 Year Old.

Archie looked a picture in the parade ring, John thought he was in great nic and that the ground wouldn’t be an issue. John had already had a winner on the card with Emeralds Spirit and there were high hopes for a double on the day by the time Archies race came along.

The plan was to sit in mid division, try and keep him on outside not crowd him with the other horses, deliver his run a furlong out. All was going according to plan, but unfortunately as he began to hit top gear, he got badly hampered and lost momentum and his race was over.

His owners can fell a bit unlucky, but again this was a promising run and he will have his owners in the winners enclosure sooner rather than later.
