Congratulations to the Paul Midgley team.
FINAL VENTURE wins JEBEL ALI PORT (HANDICAP) (TURF) at Meydan for his new connections.
FINAL VENTURE, a five-time winner for Alan Swinbank in Britain, including four last year, before sold for 260,000gns, paid back a chunk of that fee with a smart performance. Even with a hood on for the first time, he tanked along up front but he kept on well, having looked likely to be nabbed by the runner-up. He may go on improving.

Runners at 2 meetings today, Codeshare at Newcastle with Joe Fanning once more taking the ride and Big Water at Catterick. Codeshare should run well after finishing 2nd on his previous outing. The yard is coming into form now thanks to the dedicated team we currently have.

Genres wins the BETWAY AMATEUR RIDERSĀ“ HANDICAP ridden by Mr S Walker for owner Brian Valentine
A great run and more to come from this one.

2 runners today at Newcastle races Genres and Ralphy Lad in the first race.

half brother to Blaze Of Colour, a dual 11-12f winner at 3, half-brother to Equity Princess, a dual 1m-9f winner at 2-3, and Blue Dream, a 6f winner at 3; dam a useful triple 12-16f winner at 3.


Another Newcastle raceday with Dancin Alpha and Dusky Dawn.

Dancin Alpha running over 8f again finishing third in the SUNBETS.CO.UK HANDICAP ridden by Joe Fanning. He has had a few niggling problems in the past but seems to be getting his act together now for his new owner.
Dusky Dawn ran encouragingly and hopefully the run will bring her forward.

A good start to the year.

GO GEORGE GO wins again at Newcastle taking the Betway Handicap for Lee Bond and ridden by Joe Fanning.  Go George Go has won his last 4 races here at Newcastle, so he clearly loves it round here. He is a very tough individual who takes his racing well and hopefully will win many more races in 2017.

The second runner for the yard at Newcastle today was Jubilee Brig who finished third in the - Handicap. A quirky character and an eight time winner he has ability but needs it all just to drop right for him.
