A busy but satisfying day at Ripon with five runners all finishing in the first four. It was Cupids Arrow though who stole the Mowbray House show with a convincing win under Jamie Gormley who was riding out his claim.
"A routine sprint handicap. CUPID'S ARROW was 2lb lower than when runner-up at Nottingham last week and officially 3lb ahead of his mark. He was drawn on the outside, but broke well and before they'd gone a furlong he was in front on the stands' rail. That was where he stayed. Meshardal, from the same stable as the winner, ran respectably on this quick reappearance but his losing run stands at 25 now. Tadaany was a little below his recent level but completed a 1-3-4 for Ruth Car. He and CUPID'S ARROW were runners-up in the two divisions of a Nottingham handicap a week earlier."
