DOT AND TONY BURLTON WITH VALLEMELDEE

VALLEMELDEE gives owners Dot and Tony Burlton a day to remember at Lingfield on the 30th, when winning under top jockey Darryll Holland. Dot an Tony, loyal supporters of the yard and previously involved in partnerships, decided to take the plunge on their own and VALLEMELDEE has rewarded them with their first winner. I think it would be fair to say that they were both on cloud nine and the victory was well celebrated at the top Newmarket racing pub, The Wheatsheaf in Exning, later that night!

BOSUN BREESE WINS FROM THE FRONT AT SANDOWN. BOSUN BREESE, owned by new-to-racing Derek Lodge, Martin Hyson, Ron Delnevo and Darrell Breese (hence the spelling of his name!) gives them the thrill of their first winner. The drop back in trip to five and the stiff Sandown hill seemed to bring out the best in the BOSUN, who was never headed under a good ride from Darryll Holland. BOSUN will now be targeted at Nurseries, before his end of season date in the Tattersalls Autumn Auction Stakes at Newmarket in October. This horse was bought by Paul for 15,000 guineas as a fun horse and that is what he will be all season.

SIR DUKE WINS AT REDCAR to give Jan and Colin Harris a reward for their patience for the horse. SIR DUKE, a beautifully bred son of DANEHILL, was bought as a yearling from his sire's last crop. Colin Harris was determined to have his "DANEHILL", but SIR DUKE has been very immature and is still not the finished article. Named after the Stevie Wonder song, it was being sung in the winner's enclosure after Ted Durcan had given the horse a beautiful ride to win by a length. The Harris's filly KYLAYNE is on target for the Queen Mary at Royal Ascot. A debut winner in April, she has done nothing but improve and is expected to give a good account of herself.
