Colin Bowe was thrilled to
saddle his first winner at Chel-
tenham as Shantou Flyer lunged
late to land the Ryman Sta-
tionery Cheltenham Business
Club Novices Chase.
One of Ireland s leading point-
to-point handlers and trainer of
high-class mare Little King Robin,
Bowe has saddled just a handful
of previous runners on British soil
Despite having won twice and
finished second twice from five
previous chase starts, Shantou
Flyer was a 14/1 shot for what
looked his toughest chasing
assignment to date.
The Irish challenger was not
done any favours when the pace-
setting favourite Vintage Vinnie
crashed out three fences from the
finish, but Mark Walsh managed
to get Shantou Flyer back on an
even keel and he finished pow-
erfully from the final fence to get
up and beat Weather Babe by a
length and a half.
Bowe s charge is around the
20/1 mark for the four-mile
National Hunt Chase back at
Cheltenham next March and the
trainer confirmed that Festival
prize could be a target.
Bowe said: "I think this is my
third runner at Cheltenham, so
it s great to get a winner.
"I didn t think he was going to
win when he was nearly brought
down by the horse that fell and
then he missed the second last,
but he s gone and done it well in
"He s only a five-year-old and
is still learning his trade.
"We could maybe bring him
back here for the four-miler."
There was also success for Ire-
land in the three-runner
Chase as the Jessica Harrington-
trained Rock The World made
most of the running under Barry
The even-money favourite led
his two opponents into home
straight and while Qewy looked
the most likely winner approach-
ing the final fence, not for the
first time he fluffed his lines in
the jumping department and Rock
The World stayed on best to take
the prize by two lengths from
"He jumped very well, but he s
had a good practice all summer
having won two and finished sec-
ond three times," Harrington told
"He s going to go on holiday
now and won t run again until the
spring. He s done me well this
summer and deserves a break."
Penglai Pavilion (11/4) made it
three from three over obstacles in
the Neptune Investment Man-
agement Novices Hurdle.
Trainer John Ferguson said: "He
was a good Flat horse a long time
ago and has had his difficult times.
I was very lucky to be given him.
"You ve got the Paddy Power
meeting coming up in a month.
I might give that a miss and just
leave him for the Challow Hurdle,
or something like that."
Conditional jockey Lewis Gor-
don was delighted to enter the
hallowed Prestbury Park winner s
enclosure for the first time after
steering 11/1 shot Dark Spirit to
success in the Pertemps Network
Handicap Hurdle for his boss
Gordon said: "My 10lb claim
has gone now and I couldn t have
chosen a better place to lose it.
"You don t get applause like it
anywhere else. It gives you goose-
After the Derby and Arc win-
ning-exploits of Golden Horn
this year, trainer John Gosden
opened the two-day Racing
Post Trophy meeting at Don-
caster with a possible Classic
contender for 2016 in Royal
With stablemate Foundation
favourite for today s two-year-
old feature, Royal Artillery
(evens favourite) fired a warning
shot when making a winning
debut in the Betdaq two per
cent Commission British Stal-
lion Studs EBF Maiden Stakes.
The son of War Front earned
quotes of 20-1 for the Qipco
2000 Guineas and 25-1 for the
Investec Derby with Coral after
sweeping to victory by two and
a half lengths under an educa-
tional ride by Frankie Dettori.
"He s shown us a fair bit at
home. He s a big colt and has
taken time to come to himself,
but we ve been happy with his
work recently," said Gosden.
"He was in no hurry, had a
lovely run through and will have
learned a lot about racing. I was
a bit concerned about the
ground. It wouldn t be his
favourite but he did it nicely.
"I was very pleased with him
and we ll put him away until
next year. If he s training well
in the spring they ll be no rea-
son not to go for a Classic trial."
The well-connected Zest (4/9
favourite) could also go onto
better things after she saw off

Related to Group One-win-
ning fillies Soviet Song and Rib-
bons, the James Fanshawe-
trained youngster had just been
pipped on her debut four weeks
ago and had to overcame obvi-
ous signs of inexperience.
"She s a filly with definite
ability and she will have learned
a lot from today. She was quite
keen and would be better suited
by a stronger-run race," said
"I would have put her away
had she won at Haydock, but
she got beat so it s great to get
a run under belt.
"She s a filly I ve always
loved. She was bred by Elite
Racing, like Soviet Song, and
she s also a niece of Ribbons.
They are all related and it s a
"Hopefully she will improve
as much as they did."
Ebtihaal (11/8 favourite) fol-
lowed up his Brighton success
in cosy fashion in the Moran
The Godolphin-owned colt,
trained by Saeed bin Suroor,
pulled clear in the latter stages
of the mile heat to win by five
lengths from Dolphin Vista
under Dane O Neill.
"There s no doubt he ll get
further than a mile and he s a
nice, big individual. The penny s
starting to drop and hopefuly
there is more to come," said
Bin Suroor doubled up when
Classic Collection (100/30)
knuckled down well under 3lb
claimer Kevin Stott to take the
Betdaq---Serious About Racing
Handicap for Godolphin.
"He s a progressive horse and
has a lot of scope," said Stott.
Nameitwhatyoulike (16/1) ran
his rivals ragged with a terrific
front-running display in the
Racing Post/SIS Betting Shop
Quickly out of the stalls, the
Bryan Smart-trained sprinter
kept up his relentless gallop to
win by a length and a half from
"He s an amazing old horse.
We turn him out in the paddock
every day. He comes in when
he s ready and we just give him
a gallop," said Smart.
"If there s something for him
here on the last day we ll have
a look. We won t do any work
with him in the meantime."
Ralph Beckett s Magic Circle
(8/15 favourite) won for the
fourth time in five starts this
term by outstaying the oppo-
sition in the betdaq.com £50 In
Free Bets Handicap to suggest
he could one to follow over long
distances next year.
Jockey Harry Bentley said:
"He picked up great. We just
got into a bit of unnecessary
trouble when it got a bit tight.
"I didn t want to be in front
too soon. He was well-in off 8st
2lb but he s done it great. He s
a proper stayer and I m looking
forward to him next year."
Jockey Brodie Hampson suf-
fered a bit of a fright when she
mistook the winning post
aboard Moojaned in division
two of the Download The Bet-
daq App Amateur Riders
The David Evans-trained 12/1
chance still won by a neck, but
Hampson eased up her mount
inside the final furlong and had
to fight much harder than had
been anticipated to keep Sunday
Royal at bay.
Hampson said: "I ve never
done that before. If I hadn t
have done that (mistook the
winning post) I d have won eas-

It s a disappointing turn-out
but so many trainers are con-
vinced this Town Moor juvenile
classic comes much too late in
the season, hence the numbers.
Aidan o Brien doesn t think
so, he entered five of the ten last
Monday and, apart from
Deauville, will also be represent-
ed with Johannes Vermeer and
Port Douglas; the one they all
have to beat is John Gosden s
charge, firm odds-on favourite.
That might alter somewhat,
plenty believe forecast underfoot
conditions will be against this
unbeaten, Highclere-owned Zof-
fany colt and yet this wonderful
course must never be underes-
timated, it dries like a sponge,
even at this time of year.
Foundation beat Deauville
three-quarters of a length in the
group two Royal Lodge over
the Newmarket Rowley Mile ear-
lier this month; given the latter
is 7/2, and O Brien has his rea-
sons for re-opposing, this must
surely be the price to chance
This O Brien camp doesn t tilt
at windmills so to speak; Aidan
is somewhat trying and wears
his heart on his sleeve but he
and jockey Ryan Moore are
shrewd. They must think
Deauville deserves another crack,
that his others can grab grade
one placings and, significantly,
the Galileo colt sports cheek-
pieces for the first time!
With Moore riding in Australia
dual Irish champion jockey,
Joseph O Brien, takes the mount
on Deauville; now he will be out
to prove a point.
