He’s Our Star wins at Newbury

He's Our Star Newbury 1 He's Our Star Newbury


Having been disqualified after passing the post first at Windsor in April, He’s Our Star belatedly got off the mark with a narrow success in a competitive handicap at Newbury yesterday under Tom Marquand for owners Jayne French and Jacqueline Pilling.

Purchased as a yearling for a bargain €5,000 at the Tattersalls Ireland sale, he was returning to the scene of his debut third last summer and he clearly goes particularly well at the course.  Held up in the early stages, he travelled well into the race and, once finding the gaps, he stayed on strongly to hit the front under a furlong from home and kept on gamely to win.

The handicapper is unlikely to give him much of a hike in the weights and we’ll look for a similar contest again next time.
