Equilateral lands Scarbrough Stakes at Doncaster


Equilateral gained a first victory of the season from the DC Coaching And Development Services Scarbrough Stakes.

There’s no doubting Charlie Hills’ sprinter possesses plenty of ability, but he has been finding it difficult to receive his head.
Having run at Royal Ascot he went to Ireland where he ran no kind of race supporting Sofia.
Given time to get those exertions, together with the fact he runs well new, he had been shipped a chance off and he quickened up to beat Queens Gift by a head while victory did not look likely using a furlong to run.
Ryan Moore was on board and said:”I believed we were going to acquire somewhat easier than we did.
“He picked up well and has plenty of skill. He can have needed that race, as he was bit buzzy.
“He got beat by a very good filly earlier in the summer (Mabs Cross) and he’ll win his Group race”
Three went on to post for the British Stallion Studs EBF Conditions Stakes – but it produced plenty of drama.
Stewards’ Cup winner Khaadem won the race and Charlie Appleby’s Lazuli looked every inch a horse of similar possible when cruising into the front.
However, he began to pull himself up and allowed Moore along with Misty Grey yet another opportunity, which finally failed by a nose.
Winning rider William Buick stated of this 1-3 favorite:”He just began to pull up and it had been too late to start whacking him about as he was trying his best. He went when the horse arrived.
“He is a beautiful horse who travels nicely. They encounter a small dead end here and he simply stopped a little bit.”
Richard Fahey’s Bravo Faisal (10-1) made up for an unlucky adventure at Newcastle on Friday after winning the Pepsi Max Nursery Handicap.
A race for the tier moved down by half a period off high weight and had been in search of a quick hat-trick but could not really toss at the Paul Hanagan-ridden winner.
“He was somewhat unfortunate the other night so this makes up for this,” said Fahey.
“This was a great race and he is clearly improving with racing.”
