Melody storms home for Lingfield success

PHOTO-2018-12-31-13-00-02An agonising 12 minutes after the horses passed the post in the 7f handicap at Lingfield Park yesterday, Storm Melody was thankfully called the winner of a three-way photo (pictured right), getting off the mark on just his second start on the All-Weather for his owners in the Shaw Racing Partnership 2.

A bargain purchase for just £2,800 at the Ascot August Sale, he had finished a good third over 6f at Kempton Park on his previous outing/AW debut and was stepping up to 7f for just the second time in his career.  However, he clearly stayed every yard of the trip, as he looked beaten a furlong from home, only to fly home and get his head in front on the line.

The handicapper is unlikely to put him up more than 2-3lbs for that success and, given he remains unexposed on the AW, there could well be more to come, especially as he will remain below his highest career-winning mark.  We’ll keep him on the go in the coming weeks and I am confident he will be getting his head in front again soon.PHOTO-2018-12-31-13-00-01

They twisted my arm to have a share in a horse,  what great fun it’s been. They’re professionalism and incredible work ethic will I’m sure see them grow from strength to strength, certainly an up and coming team and I’ve loved every minute of it!
