Saturday's Kempton Runners

Posted on: 23rd Apr 2019

PREENING made her seasonal debut in the Listed fillies Snowdrop stakes at Kempton on Saturday and we were delighted to see her thundering home to finish a good second to AGROTERA, a very smart filly of Ed Walkers who won the Sandringham at Royal Ascot last year. Settled off a strong pace, she only had three behind her turning in for home and must have made up a good six lengths on the winner to be beaten a length.

PREENING is a joy to have in the yard and has a lot of potential. She has an exciting year ahead of her and may well land herself and her owner/breeders Cheveley Park Stud a big prize this season.

 

Also running in the Snowdrop stakes was Qatar Racing’s TIGER EYE. She didn’t get the best of runs round and ran on well towards the line to finish 5th. She has had a good winter on the all-weather winning three races back to back and this was the first time she had faced some tougher competition. She was far from disgraced and certainly ran with enough promise to suggest that there is a good chance of landing some black type before too long.

 

INDIAN TYGRESS also ran on Saturday in the Class 2 6f handicap at Kempton. She ran her usual solid race to finish 4th beaten half a length. She really is the model of consistency and this was a tough little race. It took her a little longer than usual to hit top gear off of a strongly run pace but she hit the line well which is what we like to see!
