The seven year old mare Raddle And Hum who was having her second start since wind surgery made the most of an attractive mark when getting up inside the final furlong under a strong ride from Becky Smith, who has never ridden better than she is at the moment, having also won on Justforjames last Saturday at Cartmel.

Becky held Raddle And Hum up off the pace, producing her to challenge from around two out, and the mare answered every question. With there being an eight and a half length gap to the third horse, Raddle And Hum could be in for around a 10lb hike up in the weights.


High Noon had been a convincing winner at Market Rasen 15 days ago, and a step up in trip of two and a half furlongs, and a 4lb rise in the weights wasn't enough to stop him doubling up in the hands of Conor O'Farrell. This time High Noon sat closer to the pace, and once again put in some eye catching leaps. He took up the running two out, and kept on gamely to the line, to win by a length and a half. He has been pencilled in for a return to Market Rasen again for their next meeting in early July.

Congratulations to the connections, Miss Rebecca Dennis, and Nick Pietrzyk And Partner.
