Gabriel’s Lad lands Victoria Cup

Saturdays 7.5 million pound scoop 6 rolls over again, to a cool, laughable, 10 million. With just over 200 tickets remaining going into the 5th leg at Haydocksome were looking looking for Sam Twiston-Davies to do the business on Vibrato Valtat, but it wasn't to beBarizan came over the last in front of Vibrato Valtat, both showing signs of fatigue. Ballyglasheen followed & seemed to be just out of touch with the paceMoloney worked hard to galvanise Ballyglasheen & just as it looked like too little too late, he obliged & seen off the pair. A very impressive performance from the Williams trained four year old. 

Ascot held the Victoria Cup Heritage Handicap. A monstrous field with 25 runners, it was always going to be tricky. Ayaar & Brownsea Brink headed the betting joined at 9/1. Dubawi Sound & Louis The Pious were amongst outsiders being backed, but all failed to materialiseDubawi Sound  led the near side pack whilst Purcell, the other. In the closing stages many began to fade as Gabriel's Lad & George Baker showed no signs of slowing, passing the post 2 & a half lengths in front of Glen Moss, who put in a bold bid to claim second. Baker was enthusiastic of his mount stating "He travelled supremely well the race fell apart in front of me. "I got there a furlong out going very comfortably it was ideal in that there was a strong gallop".
