Hannon’s Speedster delivers at Newmarket

Richard Hannon's speedy two year old Tiggy Wiggy was sent to Newmarket where she faced Anthem Alexander for the third time. Anthem Alexander only managing success on one occasionThe Queen Mary at Royal Ascot. It was hard to see past Hannon's mare, the only questions surrounding her likelihood of success was how she would handle the stiff track at NewmarketDoubts were soon put to rest from the off as Hannon's mare fired out the stalls to lead. Approaching the closing stages Hughes began to unwind Tiggy Wiggy, with full cooperation. Anthem Alexander was closing the gap & finished strong, but couldn't do enough. Tiggy Wiggy could be supplemented for the Prix de l'Abbaye next week but is, "by no means certain " according to Hannon. They also face the task of finding a new jockey or having Hughes up, 2lb overweight. 

On Sunday Aiden O'Brien had a host of classy prospects at the CurraghOl' Man River confirmed favouritism on his second start. Rumours of this horse are beginning to materialise as Joseph delivered him on the bridle to beat Weld's fancied runner. Tombelaine led, but was squeezed on the rail in the final furlong. No one was catching the oddson runnerThe Great War also got the job done for O'Brien, scoring by thee & a half lengths to justify odds-on favouritism after not firing the past 4 races. Like Tiggy Wiggy, there are talks of The Great War being supplemented for the Prix de l'Abbaye. He would be around 16's for a victory in Paris, whereas Hannon's 2 year old is as short as 4's in front of Sole Power at 7/2.
