Out From Under breaks his maiden at Newmarket and Sleeping Lion heads to Newcastle today
Out From Under travelled to Newmarket yesterday to run in the ‘Alex Scott Maiden Stakes’ over 7 furlongs. He had shown great promise on his first three runs and was very unlucky to have not won his 2nd and 3rd starts. Despite having been a little keen early on in yesterday’s race he travelled well to take up the lead around 2 furlongs from home to win the race by just over 2 furlongs under Richard Kingscote.
Today we send Sleeping Lion to Newcastle to run in the ‘Betway All-Weather Marathon Championships Conditions Stakes’ for owners Merry Fox Stud Limited. He has good form on the all weather having won his most recent start in a Class 2 conditions stakes. Prior to his most recent win he finished a strong 3rd in the ‘Prix Arcangues’ Listed race held at Deauville with only a 1/4 of a length between the winner and himself. Today’s race has a field of 12 runners and Sleeping Lion is the highest rated with a rating of 103. He has been drawn 11 with Kieran Shoemark taking the ride. Fingers crossed for another strong run from him.
