AYE RIGHTS WINS FOR HARRIET AT NEW YEAR'S RACEDAY

BORDERS trainer Harriet Graham is waiting until she sees how much the handicapper puts Aye Right up in the ratings before deciding where her stable star runs next.

The six year-old was an impressive winner of the feature race at Ayr Racecourse yesterday, the Frazer Coogans Handicap Hurdle.

Jockey Callum Bewley had the favourite handy throughout and he went clear over the last before idling slightly but still won by a length and a half from Road To Gold.

Harriet said : “I have a few races in mind but I will go back and wait until I see what the handicapper does before firming up plans.”

Lucinda Russell continued her fine start to the New Year when Mumgos Debut, ridden by Derek Fox, stayed on up the run-in to collar John Williams and win the Happy Birthday Teresa Dewan Handicap Chase. An unlucky loser in this was the Mike Smith trained Las Tunas who was going well in front when falling two out.

Trainer Tom Lacey sent Johnbb on the long trek from his Herefordshire base to win the opening maiden hurdle but he had to work all the way to the line under Aidan Coleman to hold off Glinger Flame by a neck.

Nicky Richards saddled his customary Ayr winner when Glittering Love wore down Present Flight to win the 3 mile handicap chase.

And Lucy Normile who trains near Perth landed a 20-1 winner in the concluding national hunt flat race with Curramore, ridden by Grant Cockburn, comfortably landing the spoils by two and a half lengths from Looks Like Murt.

Strong Resemblance, evens favourite, was the easiest winner of the day when coming home 10 lengths clear for jockey Ross Turner and trainer Oliver Greenall to win the 3 mile hurdle giving him his fourth win from his last five starts.

Top Irish trainer Gordon Elliott was on the scoresheet with Whoshotthesheriff who won the 2 mile novice hurdle.
