Ailsa Craig (a.k.a @tweesterhorse) won the feature race on the card at Beverly today. Breaking well, Tony Hamilton took up a nice position on the rail, tracking the leaders all the way around. Considering the soft conditions , the leader kept a brisk pace throughout and on the turn for home the pack came over to the better ground on the stand side. At the 2f mark, it quickly developed into a 2 horse race between Ailsa Craig and Licence to Till, with the in-form De Sousa on board: the gutsy Ailsa Craig getting the better of the runner up close home
We welcomed our twitter competition winner (Julie Western) for the day and we were delighted that we landed the spoils, a great day had by all.
Easter Seel ran below par on his first appearance at a racecourse. He is a grand type and Tim had said he hadn’t been pushing too hard and we are confident we’el see a different horse next day out.
