Round-Up From Around the World - 22/10/2018

USA

It proved to be a successful trip across the Atlantic for trainer Gordon Elliott, who claimed victory in the American Grand National with Jury Duty, who was brilliantly rode by jockey Robbie Power.

In a race which may not be as prestigious at its transatlantic namesake, Elliott returned with the $450,000 prize, which added to his collection of victories in the English National with Tiger Roll and the Irish National with General Principle.

Aside from Emmet Mullins’ Tornado Watch, who eventually lost by three and a quarter lengths, Jury Duty was in a class of his own in the race and beat out stablemate Clarcam in the same race.

Italy

Richard Hannon-trained Raymond Tusk enjoyed his venture to Italy over the weekend, after winning the Group 2 Gran Premio del Jockey Club Italiano at San Siro racecourse in Milan on Sunday.

It is the first time that Hannon has had success in the race, having collaborated with Middleham Park Racing - who also part-own Raymond Tusk - to win with Ventura Storm. Raymond Tusk’s victory sealde a £103,000 prize for the stable, as he built on a sixth-placed finish in the St Leger from last month.

"The ground on the inside isn't as good as on the outer, so we decided to come a bit wide and were determined to use our stamina," said Tim Palin, a director at Middleham Park.

"I think those tactics and that ride have helped him win. I was thinking they might come and swamp him, but I know he's tough and would keep going and stay every yard of the mile and a half. I think stamina, a great horse and great ride won the day."

Australia

Pat Cosgrave was the star in Australia this weekend, as he rode Godolphin-trained Best Solution to victory in the 2018 Stella Artois Caulfield Cup. Last out of the stalls, it seemed impossible for Cosgrave, who eventually pulled it out of the bag late on.

As such, the Saeed Bin Suroor-trained four-year-old claimed the £2.7m prize, in what was a terrific performance that included holding off a late challenge from Homesman and The Cliffsofmoher.

"He completely missed the gate, but Saeed was adamant he had to be in the first four or five and he was right. I had to work really hard to get there," said a delighted Cosgrave. "At the furlong pole I thought I might have gone too soon, but he toughed it out. He’s a tough horse, he stays well and knows how to win. He doesn’t like getting beaten."
