Review of the week – Flying Pursuit a fantastic 3rd at Newmarket

Flying Pursuit ran in the Class 2 Adnams Ease Up IPA Handicap at Newmarket on Saturday over 6 furlongs. Darryll Holland was aboard the Tim Easterby trained 3 year old gelding.

Darryll reported that the starter caught him out with the gates a little, having signaled for jockeys to take hoods off, but then pausing before opening the gates. Having come from off the pace, the horse ran a cracker on unsuitably fast ground and he is eye-catchingly progressive. There are big sprint prize opportunities coming up at Ascot, Newmarket and Ripon in August for him. We are sure he will land a nice handicap at some stage.

Sakhees Return ran in a highly competitive handicap at Ascot on the same say and finished a fantastic 3rd under Emily Easterby. Up with the pace throughout, he looked to have every chance in the closing stages and battled on gamely to finish in 3rd place, a fantastic performance from horse and jockey. It’s good to have the old Sakhees back. His turn isn’t far away.

Seduce Me ran in the Princess Margaret stakes at the same track. Having hosed up in her maiden, we decided to have a crack at a Group 3, she ran well enough and tried her heart out but was outpaced throughout. We will look for more races for her but may have to lower our sights for the time being.

Yeeoow ran another belter at Pontefract on Sunday. He travelled well throughout but was caught a little wide on the bend. He showed his usual heart and battled on to finish in 4th place, his turn can’t be too far away.

Baie Damour and Local artist both ran in auction stakes at Carlisle. Both fillies had less than ideal draws and disappointed on the day and are better than what they showed. Both are nice fillies who are sure to win races.
