Ingleby Lady continued her rise up the handicap ladder to win a Class 2 handicap at York over 6f off a rating of 92, beating Baldemar in the process by 3/4 length on ground described as Good to Firm. The time was slow by 0.49s and she was always travelling well throughout and although drifting right once hitting the front she stayed on well.
Last time out at Pontefract Baldemar ran below form but the trainer put that down to having run him to soon and he was much better here and can surely win again. Esoterica stayed on well from the rear and Oldjoesaid ran his best race for Kevin Ryan so far in finishing 4th off a mark of 93.
Only 2 1/2 lengths covered the first 4 but there was 3 lengths back to the 5th.
