News in Brief
Dreamloper bounces back to record emotional Valiant success
There were tears of joy as Dreamloper put a disappointing run at Royal Ascot behind her with victory in the Group 3 Valiant Stakes. Molly Stratton, assistant head girl for Ed Walker, could not hold back her delight as she was cheered into the winner’s enclosure and she was praised by the trainer for helping to improve the four-year-old. Dreamloper extended an excellent run of form for Walker and Oisin Murphy when finishing four and a half lengths clear of Lights On, who denied third-placed Waliyak and the favourite Indigo Girl.
Amateur legend Brod Munro-Wilson dies at 76
Tributes have been paid to Brod Munro-Wilson, one of the most colourful and distinctive amateur riders of the 1980s, who died this week at the age of 76. After serving in the SAS, Munro-Wilson enjoyed a successful career in the City of London while in his post-racing career he would become a very accomplished polo player, often welcoming Prince Charles to play with his Rocking Horse team.
RECENT LAMBOURN WINNERS
Some Day SoonJonathan Portman
Some Day Soon won four novice hurdles two summers ago, and has been in the grip of the handicapper since. He has run arguably his two best races this season, but is off too high a mark over hurdles to be winning, and so novice chasing is the obvious route to take with him now. This looks a tough race for him to be making his debut in though, but he has a chance on ratings.
Sisters In The SkyRoger Teal
The ground has gone heavy and we’re not really sure how he’s going to handle that. If he does handle it then he could run well. He’s run two decent races before and whilst the ground is an unknown, he could run a solid race.
On The Right TrackMark Usher
On The Right Track is in good form and has a good chance of winning this.
Mountain PeakEd Walker
Mountain Peak is well in himself and the ground will be ideal for him today. He is a super little horse and if running to his best he has a great chance of being in the mix today.
