Hawkeyethenoo showed us what he can do this afternoon and won the big sprint at York, he may now go for the Stewards Cup at Goodwood but his stable have said that his main target is the Ayr Gold Cup. Kaldoun Kingdom finished 2nd and it was a good result for the blog as we had the first 2 from the shortlist of 5 with the exacta paying £211.10. Unfortunately we didnt make the tricast which paid £1,817.38, we cant have everything but we will keep trying. Skybet paid out on 5th Novellen Lad which was the main selection from the blog post, he had sweated up badly before the race so he may be better on another day.
Tajneed ran a remarkable race in my view, his jockey was slow to remove his hood and so he went violently right coming out of the stalls and he lost several lengths and in a top sprint that is usually the end of the race. However his jockey never gave up and began to make up ground and by the end he was probably the fastest finisher in the race and he was very unlucky in the circumstances not to finish closer.
From the Horses to follow section Hazelrigg finished 2nd at 11/4, so all in all it wasnt a bad day and I will be looking at the best of the sprint action tomorrow so be sure to look in again from wherever you are.
