The Racing Week That Was 13-6-21


Monday, we start at Listowel. Darasso took the feature race as Samcro failed to fire. Darasso will make ha during the summer it looks like. I'd say Abbey Magic who spoiled her chances by jumping right will be of serious interest at Galway. At Gowran, it was Three runners, three winners for trainer Joe Murphy. The winners were Galtee Mist, Dark Design and Overheer. At Leicester, Highest Ground was an impressive winner for Sir Michael Stoute. At Lingfield, Yagan made it three wins in a row or Sr Mark Prescott. At Windsor, A Sure Welcome took the feature race under Ryan Tate. At Pontefract, No Nay Nicki bolted up by 8.5 lengths for Richard Fahey.


Tuesday, we start at Roscommon. Bold Enough made it two from two over fences for Henry DeBromhead. At Salisbury, Groom was a very impressive winner for Richard Hannon. At Southwell, over the jumps, the veteran Brotherly Company bolted up by nine lengths. At Wolverhampton, Live Your Dream was a really impressive winner for Saeed Bin Suroor by six and a half lengths. At Wetherby, September Power was on target for Roger Varian. At Ayr, there was a double for Keith Dalgleish with Mi Capricho and Let Me Be.


Wednesday, we start at Cork. Having won the feature race earlier on Thunder Kiss, Colin Keane completed a double when Novarrosse (13/2) was a clear-cut winner of the finale. At Fontwell, there was a double for Cristian Williams with Golden card and Midnight Solder. At Haydock, Soapy Stevens was on target for Mark Johnston. At Yarmouth, Enough Already took the feature race under Liam Jones. At Kempton, Ice Statin Zebra was on target for Ralph Beckett. At Hamilton, the veteran George Bowen won by four lengths for Richard Fahey.


Thursday, we start at Leopardstown. We were back in action at LeopardstownCasa Comigo became our first runner over jumps at Down Royal.  It was a completely new departure for us. It did not work out as Casa Comigo unseated at the third.  Casa Comigo has continued the schooling over hurdles and the horse is really enjoying the jumping. Casa Comigo has taken some time to settle in for us. Casa Comigo is a five-time winner on the flat in the UK although this has yet to translate in Ireland. Casa Comigo travelled well for a long way. Billy Lee thought he might be bang involved turning out of the back straight. We have a feeling Casa Comigo felt something physically late on, we will get him fully checked tomorrow. It was a disappointment on the night, however, we have two runners at Limerick on Saturday in Parkers Hill and Trading Point.

At Leopardstown, Real Appeal was the one for money in the morning ahead of the featured Ballycorus Stakes (Group 3) and he came home best of all in the hands of Shane Foley. At Nottingham, One Night Stand and Sendacard gave Silvestre De Sousa a double. At Newbury, there was a double for Oisin Murphy with Reina Del Mar and Semper Augustus. At Yarmouth, Piselli Molli bolted up for Sir Mark Prescott. At Uttoxeter, there was a double for Dr Richard Newland with Olympic Conquerer and Yccs Portocervo. At Haydock, Thibaan was on the mark for Sir Michael Stoute.


Friday, we start at Clonmel. There was a double for Henry De Bromhead with Arvico Bleu and Ingleby Mackenzie. At Fairyhouse, there was a double for Joseph O'Brien Okita Soushi and San Andreas. There was also a winner for Noel Meade with Female Approach. At Sandown, Secret Box continued the excellent run of Sir Mark Prescott. At Chepstow, Sir Mark was on target again with Mahagoni. At York, there was a double for Richard Fahey with Space Traveller and Gabrial The Wire. At Goodwood, Genesius made it a treble on the day for Sir Mark Prescott. At Newton Abbott, Hatcher was an impressive winner for Dan Skelton. At Aintree, former Cheltenham Festival winner Solar Impulse rolled back the years to win.


Saturday, we start at Limerick. A mixed bag for The Galaxy Horse Racing Syndicate. Parkers Hill returned from a spell on the sidelines, having had surgery during the winter. Parkers Hill ran a race full of promise and enthusiasm. Parkers raced with the choke out a bit, that was to be expected on day one from a layoff. That said we were delighted with his effort. He broke very fast and found himself in the lead which was not what we wanted. Parkers stuck to his task well-running well in fifth, we will look to get him out again soon. Trading Point has had a disappointing 2021 to date it continued here. Everyone knows what ability Trading Point has though he has run to very high marks on several occasions. Trading Point has done plenty for The Galaxy Horse Racing Syndicate in a good career to date. However, he did in his first-time visor jump out really well, travelled strongly looking like a winner turning in. Trading Point stopped very quickly Colin Keane said to get him checked. We will get Trading Point checked over and go from there.

The rest of the Limerick card saw Female Approach make it two wins in 24 hours for Noel Meade. At Downpatrick, John McConnell was on target with Itsalonglongroad. At Sandown, Saaheq was on target for Marco Ghiani. It was good news for our members who were advised Saaheq (0.75pt each way) at 7/1. At Hexham, Ashington was on target for Brian Ellison. There were doubles for Jennie Candish and Sean Quinlan with Follow Your Fire and For Jim. At Bath, Keepers Choice bolted up under jockey Tyler Heard. At Chester, Side Shot was on target for John Gosden. At York, Roberto Escobarr took the feature race for William Haggas. At Leicester, Glencorra was on target for David Elsworth. At Worcester, Mick Pastor was on target for Paul Nicholls.


Sunday, we start at Downpatrick. the good run of Noel Meade kept going as Charlie Siringo was on target. At Gowran, Siobhan Rutledge was on target with Moddy Poddle. At Doncaster, Summer's Knight was another winner for Sir Mark Prescott continuing a brilliant week for the trainer. At Salisbury, Alerta Roja gave Sir Mark a double on the day.  The feature race at Salisbury went to Line Of Departure for Roger Varian.
