Our first winner of 2016 has been a long time coming and then two on the trot! Great to see Ellaal get his handsome white face in front under a good front running ride from Paul Mulrennen at Wolverhampton.
"Another moderate handicap in which the pace held up. ELLAAL, officially 1lb well in following his narrow defeat at Chelmsford seven days earlier, very much had the run of the race out in front and despite hanging about up the home straight, never looked like being caught. This ended a losing run of 24."

"Ellaal was unlucky the last day, but that was very straightforward. He paid the price for winning a few races a couple of years back, but he´s now on a good mark so it´s good to get another win out of him. Ruth´s horses are in good form, especially him. He´s back to himself again."
