A barmy friday night at Newmarket. Servere traffic problems. A massive crowd. Jess Glynne. Frankie's 3000th winner. Definately a night we won't forget!
Ellaal is our star horse of the year so far winning his fifth race of 2016. They went a good gallop but Jimmy got an excellent tune out of our boy who always carries condition and recently starred in a British Champions Series video to promote the Juddmonte International at York next week.
"They went a decent pace in this minor handicap and the first two finished a long way clear. ELLAAL recorded his tenth win when forging clear under a positive ride at Musselburgh last time. He was switched to more patient tactics off 6lb higher here but got a good pace to aim at and reeled in the long-time leader in the closing stages. Another rise in mark will follow but this admirable 7yo has won five times this year and could continue to be a force in handicaps at around 1m."

"Ellaal is our star horse, he was quiet last year but he´s got his confidence back and that´s the highest rating he´s won off. People think he´s unfit all the time but that´s just the way he is. The key is to keep him fresh and enjoying it."
