After last week’s report went “to print” James Street made a highly promising debut at Newbury. James Doyle held the colt up until making progress to throw down a strong challenge in the final furlong, going down by only a neck.

On Saturday Fajjaj made the long journey to Ayr. However the trip was worthwhile as Hugo had found a straightforward chance for him and he duly won at the very short odds of 1/7 under Ben Curtis.

Tuesday saw Part Exchange getting back on track after her disappointing second run. A winner on debut this well bred daughter of Champs Elysees returned to form finishing a good second at Wolverhampton under Louis Steward.

On Thursday the application of a hood for the first time got Ghayadh back on the right track. The gelding had been very disappointing since a winning debut but on this occasion he travelled well behind the leaders and took it up a furlong out and ran on well under Ben Curtis to get his head in front at Carlisle – a long journey proved well worthwhile.

Meanwhile the July meeting got under way at Newmarket. Encrypted unfortunately ran too badly to be true in the £100,000 Bet 365 handicap having previously won a hot York handicap from which the winner of this race emerged.

The stable has a number of interesting entries to come over the next two days of this midsummer festival including Arbalet and Curiosity.
