A Momentofmadness wins the Portland

A Momentofmadness made every yard of the running to claim the William Hill Portland Handicap at Doncaster. Trained by Charlie Hills, the 25-1 shot was sharply out of the stalls for William Buick, who was happy to let him roll along in front, building up a healthy advantage by the end of the first furlong.

Today’s teasers…

“I was delighted with Heroic’s debut fourth at Ascot. It looks like he’s improved for that run and hopefully he’ll have a good chance as well.”

Charles Hills, Heroic

“Won well at Chelmsford after a break. If he can transfer that to the grass, which he has won on, he should out-run his big price.”

Brendan Powell, Kasperenko

“I’m not sure we’ll be able to run him, but if the heavens open, 7f will be a good trip for him and we know he likes the track. He won there on his debut and also landed the Horris Hill while he was third in the Mill Reef last year.”

Charles Hills, Nebo

“She is a nice filly who has pleased us at home. It’s going to be tough against some winners, but I’d have thought she’ll get a nice introduction.”

Charles Hills, Rhossili Down

“I am not sure that he has really enjoyed jumping fences so we are bringing him back to hurdles and he seems in good form.”

Nicky Henderson, No Hiding Place

Lambourn’s recent successes

Wadilsafa (4/6F)

3.15 Sandown | September 19

“He won well last time at York in what was quite a competitive handicap. He should have a good chance today and I’m looking forward to running him. He’s two from three this year and Royal Ascot didn’t quite work out for him, he was drawn wide and over 1m2f, it just didn’t quite work out for him. He’s a progressive horse and this is the next stage for him.”

Owen Burrows

Rippling Waters (7/2)

7.30 Kempton | September 17

“I was very disappointed on how she ran on the beach, I thought she would have been one of our better chances, but I think the combination of 7f and quick sand, that was the factor that made her underperform. She will be better back to a mile and better surface. Her work before Laytown was good, so I hope she has a chance of winning this race today.”

Jamie Osborne

Padura Brave (14/1)

6.00 Kempton | September 17

“Disappointed me at Salisbury so it’s a bit of watch and brief with her, just hoping she runs a better race. We have no expectations, just hoping she can run better than last time.”
