Three Weekend Eye-catchers - 17/06/19

Star Alexander Destroys Bath Field

There were some nice meetings this weekend but as expected a lot of the big guns were getting ready for Royal Ascot but that still didn't stop some horses taking the limelight.

Star Alexander was one of these on Saturday at Bath as he romped to victory in the Class 4 Novice Stakes and looks to be a special horse to follow in the future.

The two year old had only had one previous start on a race track and that came at Ascot when finishing third behind a nice Godolphin type who looks set to be going to the Royal meeting.

However, on Saturday Star Alexander improved massively from his first outing to completely dominate the field and take Class 4 honours, this youngster looks like a potential superstar and is worth following next season.

Sea Of Faith A Class A Part At Doncaster

The next eye-catcher form the weekend comes from Doncaster on Sunday and Sea Of Faith, a daughter of Sea The Stars, romped home to victory in a Maiden stakes but is another youngster to keep an eye on this season.

The three year old filly had previously had two starts before getting off the mark on the weekend and on her debut at Sandown in a good race full of smart youngsters she showed a lot of ability finishing fourth.

Next time out she was not as good at Newbury but the quick ground did not seem to be to her liking. However, getting some cut in the ground was what was needed and she flourished on Sunday, being a class above the rest.

Paul Mulrennan Makes It 1000 Winners In Britain

The final story from the weekend was the amazing milestone hit by experienced jockey Paul Mulrennan who landed his1000th winner in Britain when riding home the Michael Dods trained Camacho Chief in the Class 3 Handicap at Doncaster.

The jockey had been teetering on the edge of 1000 winners for sometime and after not managing to secure the landmark victory on Saturday at York it moved on to Doncaster.

The race before his big win he finished second and it maybe looked like he was going to have to wait another day to secure his big win but he gave 9/4 favourite Camacho Chief a superb ride to see him home and write himself into the sports history books.
