Jane Elliott and Toy Theatre after running away with the Fillies’ handicap at Newcastle last week.
Top trainer William Haggas continues his dominance of Lingfield Park’s Spring Cup; jockey David Probert launches a determined challenge for the riders’ championship and mare Toy Theatre has Good Friday Finals Day in her sights after an impressive win at Newcastle.
Top trainer William Haggas claimed the honours in the Listed Spring Cup at Lingfield Park for the fourth time in six runnings with FANAAR last Saturday. The gelding, who was Group placed as a juvenile, got up late to deny his market rival Deep Intrigue and will now be aimed at Pattern races on turf when the new season starts in the spring.
Jockey DAVID PROBERT has stepped up his bid for the riders’ championship by riding 10 winners in the last two weeks at an impressive strike rate of 26 per cent. The Welshman was still 12 behind leader Adam Kirby at the start of the week but has moved five clear of title holder Luke Morris back in third place. Meanwhile, Mick Appleby and John Gosden remain locked in a close battle for the trainers’ championship.
Mick Appleby’s mare TOY THEATRE made it two from two this year with a run-away success over a mile at Newcastle last week. Given a positive ride by regular partner Jane Elliott, the five-year-old had four lengths to spare over runner-up Ventura Blues with favourite Treasure Me back in third. She may re-appear in the Fast Track Qualifier for the Fillies and Mares Final at Chelmsford City this Thursday.
