Badenscoth – second win of the year

THE stable sent out two winners within three days last week, courtesy of Badenscoth at Chelmsford on the Tuesday and Wotadoll at Yarmouth on the Thursday.

Jack Duern, having recovered from a broken hand, was having his first ride back in seven weeks when partnering Badenscoth and the pair fair hacked up over a mile, winning by 3 3/4 lengths at 12/1.  This was the pair’s second win this year, following a win at Kempton back in April.

Wotadoll, justified strong market support as the 7/4 favourite won a 6f handicap under Robert Winston by half a length.  She shouldn’t go up too much for this and can win again.

The yard is going much better now and of the ten runners sent out last week, eight were in the first four, including Goldslinger, who under an enterprising front-runner ride by Jack Duern at Chepstow, was collared close home but was still second, beaten half a length.

Others to note were Harlequin Striker, who was buffeted on the rails at Sandown in a four runner affair but wasn’t beaten far and Nicky Baby and Dor’s Law who were both fourth at Yarmouth, beaten just 1 1/4 lengths and 2 3/4 lengths respectively.
