Rock Of Leon Wins @ Wetherby

Rock Of Leon was on his best behaviour yesterday and stormed home at Wetherby under a great front running ride by Nathan Moscrop, pulling clear before the last to win by 19 lengths. Great to see him win with his reputation for being a little quirky as we know he has ability within his grade but more often than not applies it to avoidance tactics instead! He hadn’t won for a good while, but he has previously won 4 hurdles and a chase. Congrats to his owners Surefire Racing and Nathan, and well done to the team who have clearly been keeping him in good humour at home over the past few months. This matches our NH winners total for last season, with one month left can Nitwit and Kilcullen Flem at Haydock or Skipthescales at Carlisle add to it tomorrow? We have all our fingers crossed!

Stargazer & Issey

Stargazer narrowly missed out on a win by a neck last time out and returns to Newcastle AW to try again today but for a substantially better prize pot of £85000 for this Good Friday meeting. He remains in good form at home, we wish him the best of luck ridden by Kevin Stott for owners Zoe & George Hassall….and Phil, who is more than pleased to still own a leg of this nice horse with the prize money on offer today!
