Three Weekend Eyecatchers - 25/03/2019

1. Executive Force

Executive Force took himself to the summit of the 'Winning Most Horse' in the All-weather Championships, after his sixth victory on the artificial surface at Lingfield on Saturday.

Starring in the Class Three Sun Racing No1 Racing Site Handicap over a mile, the 5yo led the final strides as he hunted down the Tom Dascombe-trained Sha La La La Lee, who had succeeded smartly three weeks ago at the same venue.

Executive Force now tops the list with Matterhorn, with Lion Hearted one worse off in third, and I'm sure it is not the final appearance of his emphatic off-season.

2. Get In The Queue

Get In The Queue made the headlines on Saturday evening after taking the Goffs UK Spring Sale Bumper, making it three from three for Harry Fry.

However, the real story is that it gave Noel Fehily a winner on his final ever ride before retirement.

The 43-year-old called time on his illustrious career, which included several King George and Champion Hurdle triumphs, after his victory in the Mares Novice on Eglantine Du Seuil at the Cheltenham Festival ten days ago.

He struck aboard the 5yo owned by the Rooney's in Newbury's penultimate contest - a horse that looks to be an exciting novice hurdler for next year, and will now head for the summer break himself.

3. De Bon Coeur

De Bon Coeur - a name many may not know from France, is trained by Francois Nicolle.

Earmarked as an exceptional six-year-old mare, she once beat the likes of Bapaume, Yorkhill and L'Ami Serge by sixteen lengths when she was last seen in the French Champion Hurdle last year.

After a 308-day layoff, it was great to see one of the best around back on the racetrack.

Once again she cruised into an uncontested lead, and went onto make a successful reappearance a winning one, by taking the Hypothese Hurdle at Auteuil in good style.

She will head back to the French Champion on May the 18th, and if all goes to plan, there is a chance we could see her at Cheltenham next season.
